[SRRA]: Revised Presumptive and Alternative Remedy Technical Guidance document

A revised Presumptive and Alternative Remedy Technical Guidance document AND Alternative Remedy Application and Remedial Action Workplan Approval Form have been posted on the DEP website to replace the July 2012 versions. The major changes to the document are:

  1. Section 5.6 Vapor Intrusion has been removed to reflect that the Technical Regulations no longer require a vapor barrier and VI system for all new construction of residences, schools or child care centers. Table 5.1 has also been revised to reflect this change.
  2. The requirement for a visible demarcation layer was expanded (see section 4.3) to include either a physical barrier (such as snow fencing) OR a visible change in soil types/layers.
  3. The definition of "initiation of remediation" has been clarified (see section 4.1).
  4. The Applicability section, 4.1, has been expanded to include the ability for a school, child care center or residence to submit a RAWP for Department approval regardless of date remediation was initiated, if the person responsible for conducting the remediation desires the Department's approval. In addition, this section also has been expanded to include the ability for a school, child care center or residence to submit a RAWP for Department approval regardless of the date it was constructed or changed use, if the person responsible for conducting the remediation desires the Department's approval.
  5. Section 6.1 Administrative Procedures for Obtaining Approval of an Alternative Remedy (AR) has been clarified to state that an AR approval should be obtained PRIOR to the submission of a final and complete RAWP by submitting the form and the required RAWP information pertaining to the AR to the Department (BCAIN). Once the AR has been reviewed and approved by the Department in writing, a copy of the approval letter should then be included in the final RAWP that is submitted with the RAWP form to the Department. This preapproval process is meant to facilitate submission of a final RAWP.
