Green Infrastructure Stormwater Management Techniqueshttps://www.eventbrite.com/e/green-infrastructure-stormwater-management-techniques-tickets-59762661730
With the expanding regulatory push to decrease stormwater volume and improve stormwater quality, increasing attention is being given to the use of green infrastructure stormwater management techniques. While growing popular, these techniques are often misapplied, improperly designed or inadequately maintained. This innovative one-day class will explore those techniques being implemented on an increasingly frequent basis throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. The focus of this program deals with the proper selection, design, implementation and maintenance of green infrastructure techniques commonly used in urban and suburban settings. Multiple site examples will be provided.
Additionally, with the interest of DEP in sustainable remediation, the impacts of capping contaminated sites may be mitigated by the innovative approaches discussed in this course. Therefore, LSRPs are encouraged to attend this program as they should be aware of the alternatives to “hard caps” in reducing stormwater runoff.
Changes to NJ Cleanup Laws -- What You Need to Knowhttps://web.cianj.org/events/Changes-to-NJ-Cleanup-Laws-What-You-Need-to-Know-700/details
On August 23, Governor Phil Murphy signed legislation amending the Site Remediation Reform Act, or SRRA, as it is better known. These amendments represent the first major changes to New Jersey’s landmark cleanup law, which was originally enacted in 2009, forever changing how New Jersey handles contaminated sites. This session will cover those amendments and what they mean to cleanups moving forward. Whether you are a licensed site remediation professional, an attorney representing clients on a cleanup, or a developer or responsible party on the front line overseeing a cleanup, this is an event that cannot be missed. As an added bonus, the session will cover other changes on the horizon which could further impact New Jersey’s site remediation. Special event a collaboration of CIANJ, Montclair State University and CPES.

This half-day course is designed to provide the municipal, legal and technical attendees with an understanding of environmental law and how it applies to municipalities. It will first cover the most cited, and most often misunderstood, state and federal environmental laws: the New Jersey Spill Compensation & Control Act and CERCLA. Each segment of this section of the course will address the joint and several, and strict, liability provided for under each law; immunities that may be available to municipalities to such liabilities; causes of action for contribution against responsible parties; and damages – what they may comprise and how to prove them, and when and by whom they must be incurred before a contribution action can be sustained against other parties that may be responsible for the contamination.

Presented by Montclair State University
If you are becoming UST certified for the first time or if your certification is in need of renewal, this class is for you! Stay current with New Jersey’s UST regulatory requirements and help your company and clients avoid costly penalties and fines.
The New Jersey Underground Storage Tank (UST) regulations (NJAC 7:14B Subchapter 13 & 16) require that all personnel who install, close, test, and design corrosion protection systems for regulated USTs be certified as well as those subsurface evaluators (SSE) who perform services on unregulated USTs (UHOT). All owners/operators of regulated USTs who are persons responsible for remediation must retain the services of a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) as of May 7, 2012.
The NJDEP requires professionals who work on USTs to be trained, certified/recertified every three (3) years. This NJDEP approved course fulfills the NJDEP course requirement for regulatory training and must be taken within one year prior to renewal. Professional engineers and plumbing contractors, exempt from the certification examination, must attend the course within one year of certification.This program is provided in collaboration with Continuing Professional Education Services, LLC (CPES).
