NJ remedial investigation extension deadline ends today

The Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey posted the following alert today:
If you are one of 3,000 cases that have not completed a remedial investigation, today is the last day you can apply for a two year extension with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP).
Earlier this year, Governor Christie signed a law allowing for a two year extension to the May 7 deadline in the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) for completion of certain remedial investigations. Without this extension, Responsible Parties (RPs) would have relinquished control of their cleanup to the NJDEP.

The law called for a March 7 deadline to apply for the extension but because of inclement weather and difficulties in securing financial documents, only a few hundred applications were received.
