Retention of Licensed Site Remediation Professionals Under the Site Remediation Reform Act

August 30, 2010Articles New Jersey Law Journal
Enactment of the Site Remediation Reform Act (“SRRA”) in May 2009 (codified mainly at N.J.S.A. 58:10-C) effected a “sea change” in New Jersey site remediation. The object of this article is to explain why this new statute will require close attention to the retention agreement between the “person responsible for conducting the remediation” (“PRCR”) and a newly created class of state licensees called “Licensed Site Remediation Professionals” (“LSRPs”), and suggests some issues which should be addressed in such an agreement.
