Post-Remediation Care and Continuing Obligations Management

Post-Remediation Care and Continuing Obligations Management

EWMA’s successful SECUR-IT® guaranteed cleanup cost program is now being expanded to meet post-closure needs.  Our new Post- Remediation Care Liability Assumption (PRCLA) program is designed to meet the post-closure needs of responsible parties, especially under the new remedial action permit (RAP) program in New Jersey.  This program covers liability, technical and financial assurance obligations. We can customize to a client’s risk profile for a single or portfolio of sites, and can include environmental liability insurance and structured settlements to support indemnities offered in our guaranteed fixed price contract.  An environmental structured settlement uses a guaranteed secure annuity funding mechanism for all the known monitoring and maintenance costs.  This innovative funding mechanism satisfies NJDEP Remediation Trust Fund Agreement specifications and features simplicity and lower cost to implement over conventional funding mechanisms.

EWMA’s services include comprehensive management plans and support after active remediation of contaminated property has been performed to meet all required reporting obligations. This includes the Biennial Certification of a Deed Notice for soil or a Classification Exception Area (CEA) for groundwater in compliance with the Remedial Action Permit (RAP) that was implemented for residual contamination that remains onsite with regulatory approval. It also includes mandatory compliance reporting to ensure long-term integrity of caps and engineering controls in Deed restricted use areas on a property.

EWMA has assembled a team of environmental, insurance, and financial experts to implement a third party liability assumption of the risks inherent in implementing a long-term post-remediation care program.  EWMA’s PRCLA program gives our clients peace of mind and assurance the site is managed and always in compliance.



  • Advancing Complex Brownfields Redevelopment, Made Simple

    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. These properties come in all shapes and sizes, affected by a vast array of contaminants associated with industrial operations. What is a brownfield, and what makes it different from other types of contaminated sites?

  • 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.
