In August 2019, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed amendments to the state’s Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA), commonly known as SRRA 2.0. It was the first change in 10 years to New Jersey’s program, which has led to more and faster clean ups of contaminated sites throughout the state.
Most of the changes are tweaks. A host of interested groups spent a year reviewing potential changes. Legislative leaders told the groups to find consensus items and “do no harm” to the highly successful program.
The changes solidified the existing site remediation process, reinforcing that the program works, licensed site remediation professionals (LSRPs) are getting sites closed, and remedies are protective.
