Natural Resource Injury (NRI) Assessments

The investigation and restoration of injured natural resources are part of the regulatory standards applicable to the remediation of contaminated sites in New Jersey (see Technical Requirements for Site Remediation N.J.A.C 7:26E). Therefore, all of the site information needed to assess and restore natural resource injuries will be generated as part of the site characterization process described in N.J.A.C 7:26E.

As a result, the site remediation information, normally used to characterize a contaminated site, is also used to assess and restore natural resource injuries. Therefore, there is generally no need for additional sampling/studies. Natural resource injuries fall into two general categories: ecological injury, which involves federal co-trustees, and ground water injury, which is the sole responsibility of the State.
