Update: Remedial Investigation Deadline Extended
By Lisa M. Bromberg
For many struggling to meet the May 7, 2014 statutory deadline for the completion of remedial investigations, new legislation granting a two year extension may provide a welcome reprieve. On January 21, 2014, the Governor signed S-3075, the Site Remediation Extension of Time bill, which extended the 2014 deadline until May 7, 2016. To qualify for the extension, however, the responsible party must submit an application, and potentially establish a Remediation Trust Fund, by March 7, 2014.
