Public Outreach Rule Deadline Approaching


The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (“NJDEP”) passed its Notification and Public Outreach Rule, N.J.A.C. 7:26E-1.4 et seq., in September of 2008. This regulation requires parties responsible for remediating sites to notify the public of ongoing remedial investigation and remedial action at sites in New Jersey. Although the regulation was adopted on September 2, 2008, the NJDEP provided a one (1) year grace period to parties responsible for cleanups that were ongoing at that time. Therefore, the deadline for compliance is September 2, 2009.
