N.J. Admin. Code § 7:26E-3.2 - Preliminary assessment report

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

(a) The person responsible for conducting the remediation to whom 7:26E-3.1(b) applies shall prepare a preliminary assessment report that includes:
1. A discussion of all the information identified and evaluated pursuant to 7:26E-3.1(c);
2. Scaled site plans detailing lot and block numbers, property and leasehold boundaries, current and historic structures, areas where fill has been brought on site, paved and unpaved areas, vegetated and unvegetated areas, all areas of concern and active and inactive wells;
3. Scaled historical site plans and facility as-built construction drawings, if available;
4. A summary of the data and information reviewed, which shall be compiled and presented by area of concern;
5. An evaluation to determine if there is an order of magnitude difference between the concentration of any contaminant in any area of concern and any remediation standard applicable at the time of comparison to the area of concern if there is a prior final remediation document for the area of concern. If there is an order of magnitude difference, then the person responsible for conducting the remediation shall evaluate the protectiveness of any existing engineering or institutional controls on the area of concern and otherwise determine whether additional remediation may be required at the area of concern to ensure the area of concern remains protective of the public health, safety and the environment; and
6. A recommendation for each area of concern identified at the site, supported by a written rationale, that either:
i. Additional remediation is necessary because:
(1) The area of concern is potentially contaminated; or
(2) There is an order of magnitude change in an applicable remediation standard and the prior remediation is no longer protective of the public health and safety and the environment because it is not in compliance with the standard applicable at the time of the comparison; or
ii. Additional remediation is not necessary because the area of concern is not suspected to contain contaminants at concentrations above any applicable remediation standard or criterion.
