[SRRA]: Notice of Administrative Change to Remediation Standards, N.J.A.C. 7:26D Appendix 1, Tables 1A and 1B.

On September 18, 2017, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (the Department) published a Notice of Administrative Change in the New Jersey Register in accordance with N.J.A.C. 7:26D-6.2, that updated the soil remediation standards for 19 contaminants. These updates reflect revisions to the toxicity data for these contaminants as contained in the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) database (see www.epa.gov/iris), on which the soil remediation standards are based. The updated soil remediation standards are operative as of September 18, 2017.

A courtesy copy of the Notice of Administrative Change may be viewed at www.nj.gov/dep/rules/adminchg.html. Please note that the Notice contains errors for two contaminants. A Notice of Administrative Correction will be published in the October 16, 2017 New Jersey Register (a courtesy copy of the Notice of Administrative Correction can also be viewed at www.nj.gov/dep/rules/adminchg.html). The errors that the Department is correcting are as follows:

* Table 1A, Residential Direct Contact Health-based Criteria and Soil Remediation Standards. The inhalation health-based criterion for 1,1,1-Trichloroethane should be “Standard Not Available” (NA) instead of 22,000 mg/kg, and the remediation standard will be 160,000 mg/kg instead of 22,000 mg/kg.

* Table 1B, Non-residential Direct Contact Health-based Criteria and Soil Remediation Standards. The inhalation health-based criterion for Hexachloroethane should be "Standard Not Available” (NA) instead of 10,200 mg/kg (the remediation standard will remain unchanged).

The operative date of the Notice of Administrative Correction is September 18, 2017. Accordingly, as of that date, the inhalation health-based criterion for Hexachloroethane is "Standard Not Available" (NA). Likewise, the inhalation health-based criterion for 1,1,1-Trichloroethane is "Standard Not Available" (NA), and the remediation standard is 160,000 mg/kg (based on the ingestion-dermal health-based criterion).

A courtesy copy of the updated Remediation Standards is available on the Department's website at www.nj.gov/dep/rules/rules/njac7_26d.pdf. This includes the corrections noted above.

Additional information, including the list of affected contaminants, updated soil remediation standards, and guidance for implementing the updated soil remediation standards, is available at www.nj.gov/dep/srp/guidance/#remstds or www.nj.gov/dep/srp/guidance/rs/.
