A key focus in the Sustainable Raritan River Action Plan is addressing contamination and pollution in the Raritan Basin. To further this commitment, the Sustainable Raritan River Initiative has developed a half-day workshop for Wednesday morning, October 22, 2014, to facilitate discussion of how municipalities, non-profits, and other interested parties can engage in the remediation process, build remediation into their local planning efforts, and embrace remediation in economic redevelopment efforts.

Sustainable Jersey and the Center for Urban Environmental Sustainability, the Center for Creative Land Recycling and the Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions, NJDEP Site Remediation Program and other organizations focused on remediating and reusing damaged lands will discuss new developments in this area, address how to participate in the LSRP process and will present relevant case studies.

Reserve the morning of October 22 and please RSVP so we can ensure adequate space and materials. Continental breakfast will be served. There is no cost for the workshop other than area parking.

*Workshop location is in The Forum, at the E.J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, 33 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 08901. For those who plan to use public transit, the Bloustein School is within walking distance of the New Brunswick Train Station . The nearest public parking facility is the Morris Street Deck at 70 New Street near the corner of George Street.

Remember that the "P" in LSRP Stands for Professional
Wednesday, September 17, 2014 05:27 PM

NJDEP has asked for the Association’s assistance in getting this word out: In some recent e-mail and telephone calls by LSRPs to  staff of the NJDEP, an unnecessary rift in relations among the Department and LSRPs has been created by the use of  ill-advised language by a few LSRPs in response to requirements set out by the Department for regulatory compliance.

Remember that the “P” in LSRP stands for Professional.  As  professionals, you are expected by this Association and others  to act in a professional manner in all that your do, write, and say. Please note that these written communications are discoverable under the Open Public Records Act and they are in the files reviewed by the Licensing Board as part of random audits conducted by the Professional Conduct Committee. 

Also, we have been advised by the Department that these improper communications will not be tolerated. The Department may investigate these incidents under claims of creating a hostile work environment and take appropriate corrective action.

 

 
EBC’s Fall Environmental Conference – September 29, 2014
Tuesday, September 16, 2014 05:47 PM

“Navigating Environmental Land Use Issues When Remediating Sites”

September 29, 2014 
8:00am – 12:00pm
Pines Manor
2085 Route 27 (Lincoln Highway), Edison, NJ

New Jersey’s laws and regulations governing NJDEP environmental land use issues are complex and far reaching. The issues become even more complex when you are remediating a site that is also regulated by one of the laws administered by the NJDEP Division of Land Use Regulation. This conference is intended to give the licensed site remedial professional (LSRP), the attorney, the engineer, the environmental consultant and the Responsible Party, an overview of the laws and regulations governing wetlands, floodplains, the coastal zone, highlands and the pinelands and how they relate to cleanups and what regulatory pitfalls to avoid.
