kara-isgroWe’re excited to report that Kara Isgro recently passed her exam to practice as a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP). Kara has been a part of our site investigation and remediation team since 2011 serving in varying roles, including as project manager on complex technical projects throughout the New Jersey tri-state area. She manages site and remedial investigations and plans and implements diverse remedial actions for soil and groundwater at private residences, public properties, and industrial sites. She is responsible for coordinating field activities, interfacing directly with clients and stakeholders, and preparing technical reports for various remedial scenarios ultimately culminating in regulatory closure. Specifically, she has overseen implementation in-situ bio-augmentation, surfactant injections, soil vapor extraction and air sparge technologies.

 

Kara is well-versed in New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NSYDEC), and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations, and interacts directly with these agencies. She is also well-versed in NJDEP’s Technical Requirements for Site Remediation (TRSR), Administrative Requirements for the Remediation of Contaminated Sites (ARRCS), and recent developments pertaining to the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA). She is very familiar with regulatory permit acquisition, including various types of land use permits, stormwater management permits, and Remedial Action Permits under the ARRCS, N.J.A.C. 7:26C.

 

About New Jersey’s LSRP Program:

The Site Remediation Reform Act set forth sweeping changes to the way in which sites are remediated in New Jersey. SRRA established the affirmative obligation for responsible parties to remediate contaminated sites in a timely manner and created a category of remediation professionals known as LSRPs, who are deemed qualified and licensed by the Site Remediation Professional Licensing Board. LSRPs conduct the remediation of sites in New Jersey, including oversight of environmental investigations and cleanups. They are bound by a strict code of ethics, violation of which could result in the assessment of penalties and the suspension or revocation of the LSRP’s license. The LSRP’s highest priority is protection of public health and safety and the environment.
