[SRRA]: Updated Public Notification Requirements

On August 6, 2018, amendments to the Administrative Requirements for the Remediation of Contaminated Sites (ARRCS) were published in the New Jersey Register. The amendments include changes related to Notification and Public Outreach at N.J.A.C. 7:26C-1.7.

The major change requires public notification within 14 days prior to commencing initial field activities associated with the remedial investigation (previously remedial action). For cases that initiated the remedial investigation prior to August 6, 2018 but have not yet satisfied the public notification requirements, the 14-day public notification is now due. However, for these cases, the Department is allowing the person responsible for conducting the remediation to comply with the public notification rule requirements by June 30, 2019.

The public notification webpage ( is being updated to reflect the new requirements. In addition, the Department will add language highlighting the revised public notification requirements to the acknowledgement letter that is issued in response to online submittals of site investigation reports and remedial investigation reports.
