SRRA Background: Implemented late last year, the Site Remediation Reform Act ("SRRA"), is one of the most sweeping reforms in the history of environmental law in New Jersey. Among other changes, the SRRA calls for changes to permitting procedures and cleanup timeframes. In addition, the SRRA provides for the establishment of a new position, called the "Licensed Site Remediation Professional" (LSRP). LSRPs are granted authority to "stand in the shoes of regulators" to direct the cleanup of contaminated sites. Explanation of the New Jersey law will be of interest to environmental professionals throughout the tri-state area.
