List of Biennial Certification Requirement Violators

(For complete list, please click on the following report Biennial Certifications Overdue)

New Jersey laws governing the remediation of contaminated sites allow for contamination to remain on site above the applicable remediation standard provided measures are in place to ensure the remedy remains protective. These measures can include caps, deed restrictions and ground water Classification Exception Areas. As a condition of the DEP’s approval of these remedies, property owners must monitor site conditions and submit a Biennial Certification to the DEP every two years. Failure to submit Biennial Certifications is a violation subject to penalties (see the original enforcement alert)

The table below identifies the applicable requirements, schedule for submittal and base penalty applicable for every day of non-compliance

Requirement N.J.A.C. 7:26E Schedule Type of Violation Grace Period Base Penalty
Submit biennial certification & monitoring report for DN 8.5(c)1-3 Every 2 years on anniversary of establishment Non-Minor None $8000
Submit biennial certification & monitoring report for CEA 8.6(c)1-3 Every 2 years on anniversary of establishment Non-Minor None $8000

The following is a list of cases that the Department has determined are not in compliance with biennial certification requirements. This list does not reflect all sites that may be subject to future enforcement actions. Sites may be added or deleted from the list as the Department completes its compliance evaluation.
