[SRRA]: Correction - Annual Site Remediation Reform Act Program Fee Calculation Report

Pursuant to the Administrative Requirements for the Remediation of Contaminated Sites (ARRCS, N.J.A.C. 7:26C), the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection is to prepare each year an "Annual Site Remediation Reform Act Program Fee Calculation Report."

The report is to include the information contained in the annual budget submission to the Department of the Treasury, the numbers of contaminated areas of concern and of contaminated media, the base contaminated area of concern fee, the contaminated area of concern fee for each of the four categories, and the contaminated media fee that shall be due and payable. Additionally, the report is to include the factors used to calculate the remedial action permit fee for each remedial action permit activity, as well as the Annual Remedial Action Permit Fee for each type of Remedial Action Permit. A Notice is to be published in the New Jersey Register that includes a summary of the report and its Site Remediation Reform Act Program budget, and the Department is also required to post the report on its website.

The Notice regarding the "Annual Site Remediation Reform Act Program Fee Calculation Report" was published in the June 15, 2014 New Jersey Register. Additional information is available on the Department website at

Responsible parties should be aware that for Annual Remediation Fees and Annual Remedial Action Permit Fees, the fee listed on the invoice is applicable.

For persons completing an initial online Annual Remediation Fee Form for new cases, the form must be submitted by June 30, 2015 in order for the Fiscal Year 2015 annual remediation fees to apply. Forms submitted on or after July 1, 2016 will be subject to the Fiscal Year 2016 annual remediation fees.

For persons submitting Remedial Action Permit activity documents (application, modification, transfer, termination), the document must be administratively complete and postmarked by June 30, 2015 to apply the Fiscal Year 2015 fees. Documents submitted on or after July 1, 2015 will be required to apply the Fiscal Year 2016 fee.

Please be advised that the Department will update and post the Quick Reference Guides with the new fee amounts on July 1, 2015.

Also, please note that as of July 1, 2015, the Department will be transitioning from a transaction fee model to the convenience fee model for credit card payments. What this means is that the money that is currently being paid for by DEP Programs for each credit card transaction will be transferred to the user and will appear as a charge (but not a separate line item) on their credit card statement. For example, if the DEP Fee is $50.00, the charge on their credit card will appear as $51.95 (where convenience fee = $1.95). The convenience fee is set at 1.9% of the amount being charged + $1.00. There is no fee associated with using eCheck/EFT.
