NJDEP Announces Further Extension of Site Remediation Timeframes

Author: John M. ScagnelliDate: February 16, 2021

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) recently announced that it is further extending certain site remediation timeframes in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic for an additional 185 days. As set forth in the NJDEP’s Notice of Rule Waiver/Modification/ Suspension (Notice), the NJDEP is also granting a one-year extension to the May 2021 Remedial Action timeframe under the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA).

As discussed in prior articles, the NJDEP previously extended certain timeframes for completion of remediation activities set forth in the Administrative Requirements for the Remediation of Contaminated Sites (ARRCS), N.J.A.C. 7:26C, the Technical Requirements for Site Remediation, N.J.A.C. 7:26E, and the Heating Oil Tank System Remediation Rules, N.J.A.C. 7:26F. Under the Notices of Rule Waiver/Modification/Suspension issued on April 24, 2020, and August 17, 2020, the time frames were extended for a total of 270 days.
