Providing Access To Your Property
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection recently posted a new webpage entitled "Providing access to your property." This webpage is designed to help property owners and tenants understand the process when a party conducting remediation requests access to their property as part of an environmental investigation. The webpage emphasizes the importance of allowing the progress of required environmental investigations and explains why it is important to ensure that the nearby residential and commercial properties are not impacted by the environmental contamination. This webpage will also help the public to understand how contamination can migrate through the environment and describes the process of environmental sampling.
