No longer will responsible parties with existing clean up cases need to decide whether to “opt-in” and retain a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP): In less than six weeks, you will not have a choice. By May 7, 2012, you are required to retain the services of an LSRP for any existing remediation cases initiated prior to November 4, 2009, unless you receive a No Further Action approval (NFA) from the NJDEP or a Response Action Outcome (RAO) issued by an LSRP on or before May 7th. After that, NJDEP will be out of the traditional case oversight and NFA business, except for cases involving unregulated underground storage tanks. The RAO will be the only game in town for virtually all site remediation in New Jersey.
