Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

(a) The person responsible for conducting the remediation shall:
1. Submit all documents, forms, spreadsheets, and worksheets required in this chapter to the Department pursuant to 7:26C-1.6. All forms and spreadsheets are available on the Department's website at www.nj.gov/dep/srp/srra/forms. Except as specifically noted within this chapter, the forms, spreadsheets, and worksheets required by this section require information identifying the site, the responsible entity and the licensed site remediation professional, the certifications of the licensed site remediation professional and responsible entity submitting the data, and a summary of key data and conclusions, as applicable, associated with the technical information or document(s) with which they are required to be submitted;
2. Certify, and have the licensed site remediation professional certify, pursuant to 7:26C-1.5, all forms and documents prepared to pursuant to this chapter;
3. Submit a completed case inventory document worksheet available on the Department's website at www.nj.gov/dep/srp/srra/forms at the front of each remedial phase workplan and report required by this chapter, except for a preliminary assessment report where no areas of concern were identified;
4. Submit a quality assurance project plan prepared pursuant to 7:26E-2.2 with each remedial phase workplan and report required by this chapter, except for a preliminary assessment report and remedial action report;
5. Except where a final remediation document for unrestricted use is filed with the Department within one year after the earliest applicable trigger to remediate listed in 7:26C-2.2, submit all sampling data electronically in a summary table using the format outlined in the Site Remediation Program's "Electronic Data Interchange Manual," available at http://www.nj.gov/dep/srp/hazsite/docs/, in effect as of the date the document is submitted and include:
i. The following locational information:
(1) Horizontal data points reported in New Jersey state plane coordinates using the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 1983), in accordance with the Department's Geographic Mapping and Digital Data Standards found in Appendix A of the General Practice and Procedure rules at N.J.A.C. 7:1D, using units of U.S. survey feet; and
(2) Locational information collected in latitude and longitude converted to New Jersey state plane coordinates. Conversion programs are available at http://www.nj.gov/dep/srp/hazsite/help/software/;
ii. All vertical data points reported as depth below ground surface, and in mean sea level using the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 1988) in accordance with the Department's Geographic Mapping and Digital Data Standards found in Appendix A of the General Practice and Procedure rules at N.J.A.C. 7:1D.
iii. A metadata file for each submission of electronic data that contain locational information in accordance with the Department's Geographic Mapping and Digital Data Standards found in Appendix A of the General Practice and Procedure rules at N.J.A.C. 7:1D; and
6. Submit a geographic information system (GIS) compatible site plan that includes the site boundaries and the location of all areas of concern as polygons. For assistance see http://www.nj.gov/dep/srp/gis/index.html.
(b) The person responsible for conducting the remediation shall include, in each remedial phase workplan and report, the following information:
1. The physical setting of the site that includes a general description of soils, geology, hydrology, hydrogeology, and topography of the site and surroundings;
2. A description of any significant events or seasonal variations that may have influenced sampling procedures or analytical results;
3. A description of the results and implications of field measurements or area-specific changes in sampling protocol due to field conditions;
4. A list of:
i. All variances from the requirements of this chapter submitted pursuant to 7:26E-1.7; and
ii. All rationales submitted for deviations from any technical guidance pursuant to 7:26C-1.2(a)3;
5. The applicable regulatory timeframe, including:
i. The regulatory citation of the regulatory timeframe; and
ii. The calendar date of the regulatory timeframe;
6. A summary table(s), organized by area of concern, of all sampling results, including sample location, medium, sample depth, field and laboratory identification numbers, analytical results, and comparison to remediation standards, and the following:
i. Identification of each contaminant concentration exceeding a remediation standard;
ii. For each sample, identification of each contaminant for which there is a reporting limit or a method detection limit that exceeds a remediation standard, along with an explanation in the table key; and
iii. A report of all soils and solids sample results in milligrams per kilogram on a dry weight basis, tissue sample results on a wet weight basis, aqueous sample results in micrograms per liter, and air results in micrograms per cubic meter;
7. For soil borings, test pits and monitoring wells:
i. Stratigraphic logs, which include soil/rock physical descriptions and field instrument readings detected during drilling for each soil boring, test pit and monitoring well;
ii. State permit numbers and as-built specifications, if applicable; and
iii. Monitoring well certification forms A (the well construction as built certification) and B (the well location certification) available on the Department's website at http://www.nj.gov/dep/srp/regs/guidance.htm. Form A requests such information as well owner and permit information, site identification information, and a summary of specific well construction information, and Form B requests such information as well location and elevation information and a land surveyor's certification;
8. Maps and figures, with map scale and orientation, including:
i. Site location, land use, receptor evaluation, and area of concern maps;
ii. Sample location map(s) that include the following:
(1) Field identification numbers for all samples;
(2) Sample locations, sample depths and contaminant concentrations plotted on the map; and
(3) If data for more than 25 samples are presented for an area of concern, soil, ground water and sediment contaminant isopleth maps and cross section diagram(s), including the horizontal and vertical distribution of contaminants in each media, with sample point location numbers and contaminant concentrations; and
iii. Ground water elevation contour maps showing the location of all monitoring wells, piezometers, or other ground water sampling points, for each set of static ground water level measurements for each aquifer or water bearing zone;
9. A discussion of the usability of laboratory analytical data; and
10. A description of the significance of information generated in the library search of tentatively identified compounds and unknown compounds.
