[SRRA]: Hurricane Joaquin Preparedness

All:

In anticipation of Hurricane Joaquin, which may impact New Jersey this weekend or early next week, please evaluate any remediation cases for which you are responsible to ensure that they are as ready as practicable for this storm. This includes securing the site for anticipated:

  • Large accumulations of rain
  • High winds
  • Possible flooding
  • Loss of power for remediation systems

Whether you are the person responsible for conducting the remediation or the licensed site remediation professional retained, all efforts should be made to prevent new discharges at your site and to maintain active remediation systems. Any discharges of hazardous substances are required to be reported to the NJDEP Hotline at 877-WARNDEP.

Subsequent to the storm, all sites should be re-evaluated to determine:

  • New immediate environmental concern conditions (water, vapor, direct contact). Immediate actions should be taken to address any immediate environmental concerns identified as part of this response.
  • Changes to site conditions requiring a reexamination of your receptor evaluation to determine whether it still accurately represents potential impacts to receptors.
  • If you have topic-specific questions regarding site remediation, please refer to the SRP contact list, available at https://www.nj.gov/dep/srp/srra/srra_contacts.htm.
