LSRP Obligations, Requirements &
Use of Professional Judgment

February 19, 2020 | 8:30AM - 4:00PM | Bordentown, NJ

The Site Remediation Reform Act law allows for LSRP to issue variances from the Technical Requirements for Site Remediation and also allows the LSRP to employ alternatives to those detailed in Department Technical Guidance. This approach allows greater flexibility in determining how sites are investigated and remediated.  However, when utilizing their professional judgment, it is incumbent on the LSRP to explain the validity of using variances or alternatives.  

This one-day course will examine the legal and regulatory requirements, the opportunities to use professional judgment, and examine cases where professional judgment was employed. A panel of LSRPs, attorneys, and NJDEP representatives will give their views on the appropriate use of professional judgment.
