GENERAL INFORMATION

The New Jersey Low-Level Radioactive Waste Disposal Facility Siting Board was effectively dissolved by the December 2, 2002 signing of State bill A2435.  At this time the Radiation Protection Programs staff assumed the responsibilities outlined in this bill.  These responsibilities include overseeing the proper disposal of low-level radioactive waste (LLRW) generated with the State and maintaining a public information program on the LLRW problem, disposal options and public involvement in LLRW decisions.
