Electronic Data Deliverables for SRP
Requirements for the SRP’s electronic data deliverables are included in the Administrative Requirements for the Remediation of Contaminated Sites (ARRCS Rule), (N.J.A.C. 7:26C-1.6) and the Technical Requirements for Site Remediation (Tech Rule), (N.J.A.C. 7:26E–1.6). The regulations require that sample location information and result information from the analysis of the samples, be provided to SRP in an electronic format. In this way, your data can be entered into our data management system, and be made accessible for internal and external data sharing. Exemptions are listed in Who needs to submit data?
The ARRC Rule simply states, in sub-chapter 1.6, that the submittal of “laboratory data deliverables” are required in an electronic format. The Tech Rule, also in sub-chapter 1.6, goes into more detail and lists some of the required fields, timeframes, additions and exceptions. In the pages that follow, the EDI manual will thoroughly explain what is required and how to submit it to SRP. The sample data being submitted by you will help the SRP investigator/review staff process you information accurately and efficiently.
It’s important to remember that complete, accurate data deliverables begin with the LSRP. Without quality deliverables the sampling data cannot produce accurate reports. Without accurate reports, using the data successfully becomes extremely difficult. SRP data uses, such as LSRP Data Miner reports and the Remedial Priority System, requires quality data.
NOTE –An EDD may be prepared by a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) or a qualified data preparer on behalf of the responsible party, but the obligation of submitting an accurate EDD lies with the person responsible for conducting the remediation.
Full Laboratory Deliverables
Full laboratory deliverables for “potable water, vapor intrusion (sub-slab, indoor, and ambient), polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins/polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDDs/PCDFs), and hexavalent chromium soil sample results” are also required by SRP. The Technical Requirements for Site Remediation (Tech Rule), (N.J.A.C. 7:26E–2.1 and 2.2) and Appendix A of the Tech Rule, details how to submit full laboratory deliverables for specific methods and/or analytes and media. More details on the method-specific requirements for vapor intrusion data deliverables (i.e. the TO-15 Conversion Table) are available via NJDEP Method LLTO-15. The NJDEP Method LLTO-15 Appendix also includes significant information. Detailed guidance on remediating vapor intrusion contamination is available via the Vapor Intrusion Technical Guidance.
Please note that these full laboratory deliverables are frequently submitted to the Department prior to the submission of the key documents due to the time frames defined in the Tech Rule.
Full laboratory deliverable criteria are not explained in the EDI Manual. Only electronic data deliverable criteria are explained here. However, it is important to note that the NJDEP Method LLTO-15, the NJDEP Method LLTO-15 Appendix and the Vapor Intrusion Technical Guidance have not been updated yet and do contain data that have been deleted or edited in the EDI Manual. Please follow the EDI Manual when submitting electronic data deliverables to the SRP. The NJDEP Method LLTO-15, the NJDEP Method LLTO-15 Appendix and the Vapor Intrusion Technical Guidance are being updated and will be released later this year. Upon release, these documents will be in concert with the 2012 SRP EDI Manual.
