    New Course!!! Per- and Poly-fluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS): LSRP Update for Contaminants of Emerging Concern

    8:00 am-12:30 pm
    2019.11.01

    Course Description:
    PFAS (per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances) are a diverse group of man-made chemicals that are resistant to heat, water, and oil. Perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) are the most commonly detected PFAS in humans, biota, and other environmental media, and are also the most commonly regulated PFAS. The NJDEP has also recently adopted a drinking water MCL and a Ground Water Quality Standard for Perfluorononanoic Acid (PFNA), which was recently added to New Jersey’s Hazardous Substance List.

    This program is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding and the most up-to-date information associated with PFAS, including: history and sources of PFAS; regulatory status and future industrial/legal implications with a focus on New Jersey; the unique chemistry of PFAS, including precursors; exposure, health effects, and toxicity; sampling and analytical challenges and options; fate and transport; remediation challenges; data evaluation; and forensics. The presenters were selected based on their intimate knowledge of the issues and their ability to answer practical questions. Attendees are encouraged to raise topics for discussion about the technical and regulatory challenges associated with PFAS investigations.

    New Course!!! Remedial Action Permit Applications and Response Action Outcomes: Preparations 10 Years Since the Enactment of SRRA

    1:00 pm-5:00 pm
    2019.11.01

    Course Description:
    Following the enactment of the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) created a Remedial Action Permit (RAP) application, forms and process. The program covers Soil and Groundwater Permits used by the Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) in the Site Remediation Program, to assure protection of the onsite remedy and prior to the issuance of the Response Action Outcome (RAO).

    This course will address those soil and groundwater permits issued by NJDEP, the issues raised during the permitting process by NJDEP, LSRP and clients, as well as obligations of all parties. Presenters will work through the permitting process, utilizing case studies and real-life scenarios, while discussing common errors and corrections. A discussion of remediation funding sources and financial assurance will also be included.

    An additional presentation and discussion of the Response Action Outcome (RAO) document will occur, from the proper preparation based upon the issuance of Unrestrictive or Restrictive and Area of Concern or Entire Site. In addition a review of the inserts and notices will be discussed, and the proper use when it comes to on-site versus off-site remediation requirements. A legal aspect of an LSRPs obligation and responsibilities will be discussed, including how an LSRP amends an RAO and the interaction between NJDEP, client and counsel following the issuance of an RAO.
