NJDEP Further Extends Site Remediation Timeframes – UPDATE

On February 9, 2021, we reported that the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (“NJDEP”) issued a Notice of Rule Waiver/Modification/ Suspension (the “Notice”) announcing an additional extension of the statutory timeframes established by the New Jersey Site Remediation Reform Act (“SRRA”), N.J.S.A. 58:10C-1, et seq.

Since that time, NJDEP clarified that “soil only” cases subject to the 2014 and 2016 deadlines under the SRRA were not referenced in the Notice because such sites are subject to a February 6, 2019 regulatory timeframe and a February 6, 2021 mandatory timeframe to complete the remedial action. However, a request may be submitted to NJDEP by May 1, 2021 to extend the mandatory timeframe by one year to February 6, 2022. The Remedial Timeframe Notification Form needed for the extension request can be accessed HERE.
