[SRRA]: Annual Site Remediation Reform Act Program Fee Calculation Report

Pursuant to the Administrative Requirements for the Remediation of Contaminated Sites (ARRCS, N.J.A.C. 7:26C), the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) is to prepare each year an "Annual Site Remediation Reform Act Program Fee Calculation Report."

The report is to include the information contained in the annual budget submission to the Department of the Treasury, the numbers of contaminated areas of concern and of contaminated media, the base contaminated area of concern fee, the contaminated area of concern fee for each of the four categories, and the contaminated media fee that shall be due and payable. Additionally, the report is to include the factors used to calculate the remedial action permit fee for each remedial action permit activity, as well as the Annual Remedial Action Permit Fee for each type of Remedial Action Permit. A Notice is to be published in the New Jersey Register that includes a summary of the report and its Site Remediation Reform Act Program budget, and the NJDEP is also required to post the report on its website.

The Notice regarding the "Annual Site Remediation Reform Act Program Fee Calculation Report" was published in the June 17, 2019 New Jersey Register. Additional information is available on the NJDEP website at www.nj.gov/dep/srp/fees.

Responsible parties should be aware that for Annual Remediation Fees and Annual Remedial Action Permit Fees, the fee listed on the invoice is applicable.

For persons completing an initial online Annual Remediation Fee Form for new cases, the form must be submitted by June 30, 2019 in order for the Fiscal Year 2019 annual remediation fees to apply. Forms submitted on or after July 1, 2019 will be subject to the Fiscal Year 2020 annual remediation fees.

For persons submitting Remedial Action Permit activity documents (application, modification, transfer, termination), the document must be administratively complete and postmarked by June 30, 2019 to apply the Fiscal Year 2019 fees. Documents submitted on or after July 1, 2019 will be required to apply the Fiscal Year 2020 fee.

Please be advised that the NJDEP has updated and posted the Quick Reference Guides with the new fee amounts.

Also, please note that as of July 1, 2015, the NJDEP uses the convenience fee model for credit card payments. What this means is that a charge will be added to the user's credit card statement, but not as a separate line item. The convenience fee is set at 1.9% of the amount being charged + $1.00. For example, if the NJDEP Fee is $50.00, the charge on their credit card will appear as $51.95 (where the convenience fee = $1.95). There is no fee associated with using eCheck/EFT.

Additionally, the NJDEP has updated its Compliance Notification regarding post-no further action cases requiring a remedial action permit, available at www.nj.gov/dep/srp/enforcement/compliance.htm, to reflect applicable Fiscal Year 2020 remedial action permit fees.

Lastly, the NJDEP has created two more new Remedial Action Permit (RAP) applications/forms in addition to the new applications/forms recently announced on May 30, 2019. The new forms are the "RAP Transfer/Change of Property Ownership Application" and the "RAP Contact Information Change Form" (these were previously in one form, the "Transfer/Change of Property Ownership Application and Contact Information Change Form"). It should be noted that the "RAP Contact Information Change Form" can be used to change the following information, with no associated fee requirement: (a) fee billing contact person/information; (b) Person Responsible for Conducting the Remediation contact information; (c) property owner contact information; and (d) Co-Permittee designated with Primary Responsibility for Permit Compliance. These new applications/forms and instructions are available on the NJDEP's website at http://www.nj.gov/dep/srp/srra/forms/, and will be discussed in the Site Remediation and Waste Management Program's June 18, 2019 training on the Updates to the Soil and Ground Water Remedial Action Permit (RAP) Forms, Regulations and Processes.
