LSRP Program

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) created the Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) program last year to help expedite the cleanup of contaminated sites.  The program was created by the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA), which was signed into law in May 2009, and gives LSRPs the ability to oversee the day to day management of remediation sites, rather than waiting for NJDEP approval to proceed.

LSRPs are required to meet the same stringent cleanup standards as previously established and are bound by a strict code of ethics; however, the process of remediation will proceed much more quickly under this new program.  This is a welcome change for industrial and commercial property owners and developers that are eager to achieve site closure and return properties to greatest productive use.

Given the relative newness of this program, there seems to be a shortage of LSRPs in New Jersey.  The NJDEP anticipated  receiving 5,000 applications upon the inception of the program.  To date, less than 500 certifications have been processed.  Partner Engineering and Science’s David Umbach is a PG and an LSRP and has been overseeing remediation sites since 1981, including more than 1,000 major oil company UST site removals, Industrial site closures, Brownfields redevelopments, HUD, FHA and SBA funded developments, Industrial waste system closure and construction, Landfill capping and closure,  Lagoon, pond and marina dredging, Wetlands reconstruction, Municipal water supply system designs, Spill Prevention Containment and Countermeasure Plan preparation, ISRA and RCRA compliance, groundwater remediation system design and operation.

Last week the NJDEP issued new guidance on complying with the program, clarifying certain fees, forms and site classifications/scopes of work.  Visit Partner for information on the LSRP program and the recent advisory.
