Contaminated Site Remediation Bill Signed

Governor Murphy on Friday signed into law A-5293 (now, P.L.2019, c.263) which makes various changes to laws governing the remediation of contaminated sites. The new law, which the League supported, expands the functions of the Site Remediation Reform Act of 2009 and the Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) program, adding prerequisites for licensure to strengthen protections of public health and safety and the environment. 

Some of the new requirements implemented by the amendments include better communication with both the public and local governing body on the status of site remediation. Status reports and other information that was previously required to be sent only to the Department of Environmental Protection must now also be provided to the local governing body and, upon request, to the public.  

The amendments also make it clear that municipal courts have jurisdiction to impose a civil penalty for minor violations of the Site Remediation Reform Act. While municipal courts have always heard these “ticket” violations, the authority to do so had never been specifically allocated until now.
