The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) Site Remediation and Waste Management Program has posted answers to FAQs about recently revised remediation standards.
These FAQs focus on order of magnitude evaluation and phase-in issues for sites or areas of concern that have a final remediation document and a remedial action permit; as well as, vapor intrusion remediation reports that are equivalent to a remedial action workplan and a remedial action report.
Questions you can find answers to include but are not limited to:
- Can the pre-2021 remediation standards (default and site-specific remediation standards) be used to demonstrate protectiveness of the remedial action?
- How is the order of magnitude evaluation conducted?
- What are the vapor intrusion exposure pathway equivalents to a remedial action workplan and a remedial action report that can be used to allow old (March 2013) vapor intrusion soil gas and indoor air screening levels for previously conducted and future vapor intrusion investigations?
