Submittal requirements for the NJDEP’s Site Remediation Program (SRP) electronic data deliverables are included in the Administrative Requirements for the Remediation of Contaminated Sites (ARRCS), (N.J.A.C. 7:26C-1.6) and the Technical Requirements for Site Remediation (Tech Rules), (N.J.A.C. 7:26E1-1.6). The regulations require that sample location information and result information from the analysis of the samples, be provided to SRP in an electronic format. In this way, the data can be entered into the Department’s data management system, and be made accessible for internal and external data sharing. The ARRCS Rule simply states, in sub-chapter 1.6, that the submittal of “laboratory data deliverables” are required in an electronic format. The Tech Rules, also in sub-chapter 1.6, go into more detail and lists some of the required fields, timeframes, additions, and exemptions.
There are several options for data submission, but regardless of which option is chosen it is necessary to follow the requirements stated in the rules and guidance documents. So how is the data to be collected so it can be meaningful and reproducible? What is the relationship between the different laboratory limits and remediation standards? And what do all those acronyms mean anyway? Take this class to find out!
Who Should Attend?
This virtual class is designed to provide LSRPs, non-LSRPs, and those conducting remediation with information that will allow them to better understand technical aspects of data as well as the regulatory requirements under ARRCS and the Tech Rules, as well as the guidance and have the data accepted by NJDEP. Past participants have included:
- Environmental Consultants
- Environmental Scientists
- Environmental Specialists
- Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRP)
- Project Managers
- Technical Advisors

Greg Toffoli, NJDEP
James Occhialini and/or Paul Simms, Alpha Analytical
“I learned a lot of things that I can immediately apply to my job.”
– Kaitlin Stewart, Geologist, Dresdner Robin
“The class was well done. Using plenty of examples is always extremely helpful in understanding the topic.”
– Paula MacRae, Geologist, Oweis Engineering. Inc.
Most useful aspect of the course: “Hearing from a laboratory (Alpha Analytical) on what exactly they do and look for in a sample/data, and what I can do to give them the most efficient samples possible for the best data return.”
