The program was held in the University’s Center for Environmental and Life Sciences.
Notable LSRPs and environmental attorneys well versed in the workings and requirements of the Site Remediation Program in New Jersey discussed the differences between ethical and unethical behavior as they apply to obligations within SRRA. The half-day program offered 3 Ethic NJ LSRP CEC’s, 3.6 NJ CLEs, and 3 CPCs.
