SRP Proposed Rules
Updated 1 September 2011

The Department recently published a proposal to amend the Administrative Requirements for the Remediation of Contaminated Sites (ARRCS rules), N.J.A.C. 7:26C, the Discharges of Petroleum and Other Hazardous Substances rules, N.J.A.C. 7:1E, the Underground Storage Tanks rules, N.J.A.C. 7:14B, and the Industrial Site Recovery Act rules, N.J.A.C. 7:26B, and to repeal and replace the Technical Requirements for Site Remediation (Technical Requirements), N.J.A.C. 7:26E.   The proposal was published in the New Jersey Register at 43 NJR 1935(a). 

The purpose of the proposed amendments and repeals is to remove all provisions related to the phase in period during which projects are currently allowed to transition from proceeding under direct Department oversight to proceeding under the supervision of an LSRP.  The Department is also proposing to recodify from the ISRA Rules and the UST rules to the ARRCS rules all administrative requirements.  The Department is also proposing to add to the ARRCS rules regulatory and mandatory time frames by which the remedial investigation must be completed and the remedial action must be implemented.  Finally, the Department is proposing to repeal the existing Technical Requirements, and to replace them with new Technical Requirements that contain performance based remediation goals.
