The right of citizens to preserve environmental values. First, the proposed amendment to the Constitution recognizes the right of citizens to maintain certain values in the environment. In particular, this clause requires the state to examine the impact of measures on clean water, clean air and ecologically healthy habitats, as well as on the preservation of natural, landscape, historical and aesthetic qualities of the environment before taking action. The state can rely on its management authorities to interpret “clean air,” “pure water” and other technical benchmarks. However, such an interpretation of the Agency is not automatically constitutionally consistent if the Agency`s interpretation and implementation are below appropriate standards. The clause does not call for an end to economic development or the victim of other fundamental values such as constitutionally protected property rights. Instead, environmental values are respected and government actions cannot be implemented without an appropriate effort to address the environmental impacts of development. The Superfund task force, set up by the EPA at the beginning of the Trump administration, assessed whether it was necessary to reduce the financial burdens on cooperating PRPs by adapting the fa in accordance with CERCLA`s enforcement documents, while ensuring that private resources were available to carry out the remediation. Although the task force understood that the flexibility of PRPs could contribute to timely solutions and speed up sanitation, the task force rejected the recommendation of a general approach and concluded that any flexibility of research and energy support mechanisms should be addressed in the context of the location-specific circumstances and considerations set out in the 2015 EPA decla guidelines. The deadline for parties responsible for remediation of existing old sites to register for the Licensed Site Remediation Professional (“LSRP”) program was May 7, 2012. This delay marked an important step in the new system put in place by the Site Rehabilitation Reform Act 2009 for the implementation of the LSRP programme, which revised the way sites were rehabilitated in the state. The LSRP program has been phased in over the past three years, during which 1,200 cases have been closed.

Officials who have not hired a PRSA face the possibility of being placed under direct supervision, which implies a greater participation of the NJDEP than in the previous case manager system. Cases of underground oil tanks, long-term monitoring, federal government clean-up and publicly funded NJDEP sites are excluded from the Site Rehabilitation Reform Act and should not be included in the LSRP program.
