Governor Corzine Signs Site Remediation Reform Act


On May 7, 2009, Governor Jon Corzine signed into law the Site Remediation Reform Act (the “Law”) that will overhaul the way investigations and cleanups are done in New Jersey. The Governor concurrently signed Executive Order #140 that clarifies certain provisions to the Law. The Law addresses the overburdened New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (“DEP”)’s current staff, budget constraints and case backlog by creating a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (“LSRP”) program. The LSRPs are environmental consultants with specified education and experience who perform investigations and remediation at sites in New Jersey. The legislation, sponsored by Senator Bob Smith, was passed by the New Jersey Senate on March 16, 2009.
