Dispute Resolution

As you may be aware, the NJDEP has been reticent in getting involved with disputes between LSRPs working for adversarial parties since the initiation of the LSRP Program.  Such disputes may arise due to landlord/tenant issues, neighboring properties conflicts, commingled plumes, ISRA responsible entity/property owner disputes and so on.

Over the last several years, responsible entities and their counsel have expressed frustration over the inability to utilize NJDEP to resolve these disputes.  In an effort to assist the overall LSRP Program, the LSRPA is offering an opportunity to provide willing members to serve as a technical arbitrator or mediator in these disputes. 

Here’s how it will work:  interested LSRPs are listed below.  Disputing parties may identify and contact LSRPs to serve as an independent technical arbitrator/mediator.  The disputing parties will enter into a contract for services directly with the LSRP; the Association will not be involved with setting up the contact between the parties or the contract for services.

The LSRP Dispute Resolution Services webpage listing is designed to provide a resource for parties to identify LSRPs who can assist in discussions regarding the dispute and potentially resolve disputes.  The provision by the LSRPA of names of LSRPs who are willing to provide these services is not a representation or any form of warranty or guaranty as to the skill sets or qualification of those LSRPs.  Parties engaging in dispute resolution need to make their own determinations as to the qualification of any LSRPA member assisting in that process and make their own arrangements as to the specific process and terms of the dispute resolution.
