New Jersey Licensed Site Professional

In May, 2009, New Jersey  lawmakers signed into law the New Jersey Site Remediation Act (SRRA).  SRRA significantly changed the New Jersey Site Remediation program by establishing Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRPs).  The NJDEP now issues LSRP licenses based on education, experience and the successful passing of a written exam.  Under SRRA, LSRPs are responsible for managing the day to day operations of remediation sites while maintaining a strict code of ethics.

The LSRP program relies upon environmental consultants who have been approved as Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRPs).  The NJDEP has assigned a 13-member Licensing Board to oversee LSRPs.  The Licensing Board has extensive authority over any LSRP, including issueing standards for professional conduct, investigating complaints, imposing discipline and maintaining lists of LSRPs in good standing, as well as professionals who have been suspended.

Under the new LSRP program, the NJDEP no longer oversees sight remediation.  All duties of project management are now directed to the LSRP.  Essentially, the LSRP is stepping into the Department's shoes and must remediate using a strict code of conduct.

An NFA (No Further Action) letter, formerly issued by the NJDEP, has been replaced with a Response Action Outcome (RAO) letter.  Bluestone has epxerienced staff that can advise you regarding options based on your specific environmental condition/situation and can guide you to your RAO letter in a manner that best suits your needs.

If you have an issue with your property, or are currently in the process of an investigation/remediation, contact us.  Bluestone's initial consultation is free and our LSRPs will propose a responsible, cost-effective solution.
