Remediation Funding Source
and RCRA Financial Assurance Requirements
RFS & Surcharge
The establishment of a remediation funding source (RFS) is required with submission of a remediation certification, signing of a administrative consent order, as directed in an Order or Court Order or upon the approval of a remedial action work plan for ISRA-subject facilities. Parties required to post a RFS must comply with the RFS requirements detailed at N.J.A.C. 7:26C-5[pdf]. The amount of the RFS must reflect the cost of the remediation, including the DEP’s fees and oversight costs, but excluding the estimated cost to operate, maintain and inspect engineering controls as part of a remedial action permit as provided in N.J.A.C. 7:26C-7[pdf]. When applicable, parties must pay a surcharge on the amount of RFS posted.
