In May 2009, New Jersey law regarding environmental investigation and remediation was changed significantly. The law, known as the “Site Remediation Reform Act” or “SRRA”, established a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) program. LSRPs now have the responsibility for oversight of environmental investigation and cleanup as well as site closure. The LSRP program allows the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) to retain authority over the remediation process while the LSRP manages the investigation and remediation of the site from day to day. Under SRRA, NJDEP approval is no longer required prior to proceeding with investigation and remediation. This results in contaminated sites being cleaned up more quickly. LSRPs are also able to help with their clients’ financial needs, by accessing funds available for clean ups through low interest loans and grants available through the NJDEP and NJ Economic Development Authority (NJEDA).

Services to be performed by LSRPs:

  • Preliminary Assessments (PA)/Site Investigations (SI)
  • Remedial Investigations
  • Remedial Action Workplans (RAW)/Response Action Outcomes (RAO)
  • ISRA Compliance
  • Linear Construction Projects
  • Financial Assistance
