Upcoming Courses and Conferences

Friday
October 31 8:00am - 4:00pm
Topic: Approaches to Innovative Treatment - New and Emerging Technologies for LSRPs
Location: University Hall
As more projects move from the study phase into the remediation phase, it is important for the LSRP to be familiar with a full range of remedial solutions. Innovative technologies are emerging at an ever-quickening pace. This course is designed to give the participant greater familiarity with new and emerging remedial technologies and approaches for site cleanups and the factors to be considered for selection.

November 25 8:00am - 4:00pm
Topic: LSRP Obligations, Requirements and Use of Professional Judgment
Location: Eco-Complex, Bordentown, NJ
This course examines the legal and regulatory requirements and opportunities/examples of LSRP use of Professional Judgement. One of the basic differences imposed by passage of the Site Remediation Reform Act was the use of professional judgment by LSRPs. The law allows for the 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 the professional 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. This program examines the legal and regulatory requirements, the opportunities to use professional judgment, and examines cases where professional judgment was employed. A panel of LSRPs, attorneys, and NJDEP representatives will give their views on the appropriate use of professional judgment.

Topic: Hot Topics in Technical Guidance
This course is designed to explore various issues embedded in NJDEP’s technical guidance which may be ambiguous, confusing or complex. New guidance recently released will be examined (e.g. Technical Impracticability, Data Quality Assessment and Usability) as well as pending Technical Guidance (Capping, Groundwater interaction with Surface Water).

January
Topic: The Investigation and Remediation of Sediments
Increasingly, the importance of sediment investigation and remediation have emerged as major issues in environmental remediations. This course will examine the contamination and impacts of sediments at some noteworthy sites. The remediation of sediments is difficult and potentially costly, yet, in some case , valid. Various technologies utilized to remediate sediments will be discussed.
