Course Description:

In this 2-hour course, environmental professionals will learn the regulatory basis, case law, and the application of particular tools and techniques for conducting natural resource damage assessments (NRDA). NRDA provisions are contained in Federal law (e.g., CERCLA, OPA) and in New Jersey state statutes.  If a site has been impacted by hazardous substances or petroleum hydrocarbons, even if the contamination has been remediated, the responsible party may still be liable through a NRD claim for interim “service loss” of groundwater, wetland, and/or sediment resources.  

Course Objectives:

  • Overview of Natural Resource Damages (NRD) law and regulations in New Jersey
  • Types of Resources and Damages
  • Major Phases of NRDA
