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.



  • How surety bonds expand post-remediation care options to meet financial assurance requirements

    Earlier in 2019, the New Jersey legislature approved updates to the 2009 Site Recovery Reform Act (SRRA), a suite of improvements known collectively as SRRA 2.0. Introduced a decade after the original SRRA, this legislation sought out to improve upon the original set of regulations. One such tweak was to the list of acceptable remedial […]

  • How vapor intrusion is discovered and remediated

    Co-Authored by Don Richardson, President and Jacob Strauss, Senior Engineer.

    Vapor intrusion has evolved into one of the highest risks commercial real estate developers and owners face. Vapor intrusion can pose a greater risk than contaminated soil or groundwater. The rise of vapors from contaminated sources into buildings can pose an immediate risk if they reach hazardous levels.

  • Tackling post-remediation care in New Jersey

    Environmental remediation projects are rarely a one-and-done undertaking. A site may need to be monitored and maintained long after regulatory agency closure, if the active remediation did not achieve the most stringent cleanup standards.

  • Before you excavate, explore compliance attainment

    Developers may not know that there’s more than one way to tackle a soil remediation project. Many assume that this kind of cleanup calls for a total excavation, carting off truckloads of contaminated soil to be cleaned or replaced entirely. However, for some projects, such an invasive and labor-intensive process may not be necessary.

  • 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?
