  • Is part of a dredging or dredged material management activity, the sediment sampling plan shall be prepared in accordance with chapter Appendix G, incorporated herein by reference, and approved in writing by the Department’s Office of Dredging and Sediment Technology; or
  • Is part of a remedial investigation of a contaminated site, the sediment sampling plan shall be prepared in accordance with the Technical Requirements for Site Remediation, N.J.A.C 7:26E, and approved by the Department or certified by a Licensed Site Remediation Professional in accordance with the Administrative Requirements for the Remediation of Contaminated Sites (ARRCS), N.J.A.C. 7:26C.
