Site Remediation Extension of Time Bill Gives 2 Additional Years for Completion of Remedial Investigation of Contaminated Sites
Two Year of Extension of May 7, 2014 Deadline For Completion of Remedial Investigation of Contaminated Sites
For those watching the NJDEP deadline for Remedial investigation completion, Assembly Bill No. 4543, the Site Remediation Extension of Time bill, passed in both the Assembly and Senate on January 13, 2014. The governor is expected to sign it within 10 days of the General Assembly adoption date of January 6, 2014. Under current law, remedial investigations are required by be completed by May 7, 2014 under the Site Remediation Reform Act. The new date is May 7, 2016 and applications for extension must be filed no later than March 7, 2014 or 30 days after the date of enactment. As part of the application for extension, the responsible party must certify that it has met all of the following conditions to qualify for an extension: 1) that it has retained a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP); 2) that it has submitted required compliance reports; 3) that it has established a Remediation Funding Source (RFS) if required; 4) that if a RFS is not required, it has established a Remediation Trust Fund for the estimated RI cost; 5) that it has paid outstanding NJDEP oversight costs; and 6) that it has paid NJDEP annual fees for remediation and remediation funding source surcharges. Depending upon how much work is required to complete the RI and establish the Remediation Funding Source or Trust, the application deadline of March 7, 2014 is very tight.
