NJDEP-Bureau of Environmental Radiation

 

Radiologically Contaminated Site Cleanups

Staff of the Bureau of Environmental Radiation provide technical support to the Site Remediation Program (http://www.nj.gov/dep/srp/) on the investigation and remediation of radiologically contaminated sites in New Jersey. The Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) program (http://www.nj.gov/dep/srp/srra/) applies to these sites with one notable exception - the LSRP cannot approve and implement any work regarding the radionuclide contamination without first obtaining Department approval. Sites contaminated with radioactive materials in New Jersey include former manufacturing facilities, sites that were part of the Manhattan Project (the first nuclear weapons program), other weapons program (such as the BOMARC Missile site pictured) and various mineral/mining operations. Regulations, guidance, and a spreadsheet available for download assist LSRPs, consultants and responsible parties in complying with cleanup requirements.
