Free Whitepaper: Identifying Remediation Needs for Historic Fill

The available information regarding assessing, investigating, and remediating historic fill in New Jersey is often conflicting, which can make it difficult to identify the best next steps in the case that this type of material is encountered. While it’s always wise to consult with a risk management professional and Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP), this whitepaper provides additional references and guidance for those in the position of making decisions regarding the remediation needs of historic fill. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) defines historic fill material as non-indigenous material that has been deposited to raise the topographic elevation of a site and was contaminated prior to being placed there. This could be construction or demolition debris, dredge spoils, incinerator residue, fly ash, or nonhazardous solid waste. Remediating parties often identify this material when investigating other areas of concern at a site, which can complicate matters even further.

If you are a responsible party or person responsible for conducting remediation at a site with historic fill, use this free whitepaper as a resource to begin sorting through your obligations. For further information, don’t hesitate to reach out!
