Remedial Priority System


Remedial Priority System

Bureau of Information System (BIS)


RPS Overview

The Remedial Priority System is a computerized modeling system designed to help the Department to categorize sites based on potential risk to public health, safety or the environment.  The RPS System is one of many tools used by the Department to evaluate sites for further consideration of Department oversight. It is NOT meant to be an electronic case manager nor an electronic risk assessment, but rather a mechanism to assist the Department in identifying potential risk and making informed decisions when allocating its resources.

The most important aspect of the program is to remediate your site in conformance with applicable rules, regulations, and guidance!

Please utilize the various links located on the menu to learn more about the RPS system.



The Remedial Priority System (RPS) System was mandated pursuant to the Spill Compensation and Control Act (N.J.S.A. 58:10-23.16) as amended in section 39 of P.L.2009, c60 of the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA). The information and documents contained on this website are intended to provide general information about the RPS System. Users of this information should not consider these materials to be the sole source of information sufficient in and of itself to dictate any outcome or remedial decision of a contaminated site but should refer to site specific data and the Department's Rules and Technical Guidance provided on the Site Remediation Web site.
