New Jersey LSRP

Helping Businesses Navigate New Jersey’s Environmental Rules

Greetings from NJ - LSRP

What does the New Jersey LSRP program mean to you?

In 2012, New Jersey passed a unique program to stimulate the cleanup of contaminated sites in a timely manner: the Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) program. After its implementation by the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA), the LSRP program now certifies a qualified private professional to act on behalf of the NJDEP.

If you have property in New Jersey, you may be required to conduct an environmental investigation and/or cleanup on your land. At first, this may sound like a hassle; but thanks to having a LSRP, you save time and do not require NJDEP approval to continue with the cleanup of your site.

When are you required to have a LSRP at your property?

You are required to take action and retain a LSRP if one or more of the following fits your situation:

  • You have discovered or have knowledge of a discharge of a hazardous substance.
  • You become a responsible pursuant to the Spill Compensation and Control Act for a discharge.
  • You are the owner or operator of a regulated Underground Storage Tank (UST) that has had a discharge or suspected discharge occur.
  • You are the owner or operator of a regulate UST undertaking closure.
  • You are the owner of an industrial establishment and choose to transfer ownership or cease operations, thus triggering ISRA.
  • You are the recipient of a No Further Action (NFA) that has been rescinded or Response Action Outcome (RAO) that has been invalidated.

Action is also required when there is an Immediate Environmental Concern (IEC) and/or Vapor Concern (VC).

NJDEP regulatory deadlines that are important to you.

Certain phases of the LSRP program have mandatory deadlines, and missing a deadline can lead to enforcement actions. If you are currently conducting an environmental investigation and/or remediation on your site, avoid legal hassles and be conscious of upcoming, important dates.

Remedial investigation and remedial actions can both be complicated and take several years to complete. Our best advice is to not delay taking action; save yourself the cost and stress of waiting until the last minute by planning ahead while you still have options.
