NJDEP’s Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) of 2009 established a new class of environmental consultant: the Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP). Fully implemented in May 2012, the SRRA requires that all remediation projects retain an LSRP regardless of when the cleanup was initiated. If you are a property owner, municipality, school, or other entity in any way responsible for the cleanup of a contaminated site in New Jersey, it is likely that your project requires an LSRP.
The LSRP acts on behalf of the NJDEP and provides regulatory guidance, oversight, and closure by issuing a Response Action Outcome (RAO). By using an LSRP, you will expedite the investigation, remediation, and closure of soil and groundwater cleanups. So much so that, in many cases, your project may finish in less than half the time than might occur under the former regulatory program.
Asking The Right Questions
How do you know if you’ve got the right LSRP for the job? Here are a few questions to ask before you hire:
- How many RAOs has the LSRP issued?
- What is the LSRP’s area of expertise?
- Does the LSRP utilize their right to exercise professional judgement? Or are they more rigid in their decision-making?
