Some important new developments in the New Jersey Site Remediation Program:
1. Capping of Volatile Contaminants for the Impact to GW Pathway Guidance now available (August 30, 2018)
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection announced the availability of the Capping of Volatile Contaminants for the Impact to Ground Water Pathway Guidance (August 2018). This guidance details the conditions and requirements under which capping may be allowed on a site-specific basis. Previously, capping of inorganic and semi-volatile organic contaminants were permitted under certain circumstances, but this did not include VOCs, such as benzene, toluene, TCE and PCE.
- Public Notification Requirements are updated (December 21, 2018)
The major change requires public notification within 14 days prior to commencing initial field activities associated with the remedial investigation (previously remedial action). For cases that initiated the remedial investigation prior to August 6, 2018 but have not yet satisfied the public notification requirements, the 14-day public notification is now due. However, for these cases, the Department is allowing the person responsible for conducting the remediation to comply with the public notification rule requirements by June 30, 2019.
- Ecological Evaluation Technical Guidance has been updated (August 6, 2018)
