    New Program!

    Environmental Statistics for LSRPs

    The use of statistical analysis to evaluate environmental data may be necessary to comply with regulations or for application of technical guidance. The use of statistics may also hold the key to unlocking important information that is otherwise hidden in a set of data. However, identifying appropriate statistical tests and knowing how to apply them can be perplexing, and reviewing statistical data analysis completed by others can be just as challenging.

    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 new and 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.

    This half-day interactive computer workshop is team taught by NJDEP's Site Remediation Waste Management Program (SRWMP) GIS staff and includes a lecture portion that will address SRWMP GIS data submittal requirements, common problems encountered with these submittals and the various GIS layers created and maintained by SRWMP.  Information and hands-on learning will enable licensed site remediation professionals (LSRPs) and other environmental professionals to provide required submissions to the department consistent with NJDEP's rules and guidance. The interactive portion explores the popular NJ-GeoWeb mapping application as it relates to site remediation activities.  Learn how to locate areas of interest, view and interact with NJDEP's GIS data, and query related environmental information.  In addition, attendees will work with ArcExplorer, a free GIS mapping software from ESRI to demonstrate how to create basic GIS data deliverables for submittal to SRWMP.

    Ecological Risk Assessment for Site Remediation on 12/6/18.

    This program will show you how to clean up an environmentally sensitive area in a cost-effective and efficient manner. Given a range in environmental settings (from ditches to urbanized estuaries), students will be taught how to select the proper remedial method (e.g., capping, dredging, bank stabilization) based on the source of the contaminant, practicability, cost, intrusiveness, and long-term effectiveness. Technical aspects will include remedial design, specification of materials and equipment, and coordinating with contractors. Case studies will be used to illustrate how the responsible party selected the appropriate remedy, coordinated with regulatory agencies (e.g., NJDEP, USEPA, USFWS), and monitored long-term effectiveness

    The Site Remediation Reform Act law allows for LSRP to issue variances from the Technical Requirements for Site Remediation and also allows the LSRP to employ alternatives to those detailed in Department Technical Guidance. This approach allows greater flexibility in determining how sites are investigated and remediated.  However, when utilizing their professional judgment, it is incumbent on the LSRP to explain the validity of using variances or alternatives.
