On May 14, 2018, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) updated the Technical Guidance Document for Immediate Environmental Concerns (IECs). IECs are remediation cases which have identified an immediate potential impact to human health, such as identifying contamination in a potable well, or contamination in indoor air. IECs have stricter remediation and reporting requirements then typical remediation cases, to ensure adequate remedies are installed as quickly as possible. The only major change to the updated IEC Technical Guidance Document is that a new section has been added which provides additional clarity on reporting obligations when contamination is identified in a potable well which is either a public supply well or production well for human consumption.
A copy of the updated document, along with summary of changes, can be viewed on the NJDEP’s website here:
