NJ Industrial Site Recovery Act (ISRA)

NJ Industrial Site Recovery Act (ISRA)

Since 1987, EWMA has successfully worked with property owners, attorneys and realtors to support hundreds of real estate transactions by helping clients comply with the New Jersey’s Industrial Site Recovery Act (ISRA).  This act requires filing with the State of New Jersey upon cessation of certain types of business operations and preparation of a Preliminary Assessment Report (PAR).  The report assesses potential areas of environmental concern (AOCs) that may require additional investigation and remediation prior to the sale or transfer of a property. 

We take the pressure of dealing with ISRA off of our clients.  Our environmental professionals put their decades of experience to work to find the most time and cost-efficient way to close out an ISRA case with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP).  To close an ISRA case, a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) must sign off on ISRA compliance and issue a Response Action Outcome (RAO) declaration.  EWMA has LSRPs on staff with extensive ISRA compliance experience that can guide you through the ISRA process to achieve case closure via issuance of a RAO.  Our ability to understand and fast track the process can make all the difference in closing your real estate transaction.

    Decades of unregulated, uncontrolled and poor environmental practices have led to millions of acres of “brownfields” in the U.S., properties which must be properly remediated before they are repurposed or redeveloped.

  • When Co-Mingled Plumes Can Impact Your Project, CSIA May Be The Answer!

    By Michael Sylvester & Ed Sullivan

    It’s a frustrating scenario that plays out quite frequently in New Jersey: a routine development is challenged by other unknown groundwater contaminants discovered on the site. Whether the property was already undergoing an environmental cleanup or the contaminants are a total surprise, discovery of a groundwater plume can bring a smooth development process to a screeching halt. A routine project can be thrown into the throes of litigation, not to mention unexpected incurred expenses, in an instant.

  • Choosing the right partner to meet your ISRA obligations

    For nearly 40 years, New Jersey has relied on a set of rules known as the Industrial Site Recovery Act (ISRA) to ensure that industrial properties with potential contaminant exposure are safely transferred or closed. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) requires any qualifying industrial property to follow ISRA regulations.

  • SRRA 2.0 Ushers In New Changes For Remediation in NJ

    What’s changed?

    Passed in 2009, the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) brought major changes to how New Jersey’s contaminated properties are cleaned up and deemed fit for future development. Now, the legislation has received its first overhaul, with the recent signing of S-3862/A-5293, known colloquially as “SRRA 2.0.” This legislation revisits many of the required processes of identifying, reporting, remediating, and maintaining cleaned sites, working out multiple kinks that have been grappled with in New Jersey’s Site Remediation Program since the legislation was enacted.
