The Legislature has established specific conditions that trigger the Department's evaluation of the remediation of a site for direct oversight. In addition, Section 27d the Site Remediation Reform Act requires the Department to issue guidelines establishing specific criteria that the Department will evaluate in order to determine when a site or a portion of a site will be subject to direct oversight pursuant to Section 27b. The purpose of this guidance document is to fulfill this requirement and to provide the public with notice of these criteria.

8. Preparation of the Case Inventory Documents

 

Brief Description of Document
The Case Inventory Document (CID) is a concise summary of all areas of concern (AOCs) and major case components that serve to form the basis for remedial decisions. The person responsible for conducting the remediation shall develop and submit the CID with each remedial phase report and Direct Oversight Documents. The tracking of AOCs and major case components allows for the person responsible for conducting the remediation and the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) to:

  1. efficiently track the progress of all AOCs from identification to issuance of a final remediation document (i.e., Remedial Action Outcome (RAO), No Further Action letters (NFAs), etc.), in one easily identified section of the technical reports;
  2. review a summary of the work completed and planned at each AOC; and
  3. identify the current case status.

This tracking process allows for the snapshot review of remedial efforts.

10. Public Notification Guidance

 

Brief Description of Document
The Department has recently adopted rule amendments affecting public notification requirements to address concerns from the community. Included in these amendments is the recodifying of the public notification requirements from the Technical Requirements for Site Remediation (Technical Requirements, N.J.A.C. 7:26E-1.4) in the Administrative Requirements for the Remediation of Contaminated Sites (ARRCS, N.J.A.C. 7:26C-1.7).

Please note: ARRCS states that public notification must be conducted 14 days prior to commencing field activities associated with the Remedial Action (RA). This differs from the previous requirement in the Technical Requirements that public notification must be conducted 14 days prior to commencing field activities associated with the Remedial Investigation (RI). This change was made in error and the requirement for public notification will be changed back to the RI in a future rule amendment package. Until the amendment package is adopted, and as mentioned above, the Department believes that it beneficial to everyone the early that public outreach and notification occurs, and supports RPs conducting public outreach and notification occurs prior to the RA.

The Department has compiled a list of FAQs, and developed the following guidance to help remediation parties comply with the amendments:
