Recently, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced that it will administer a $2.3 million grant issued by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in order to aid homeowners and operators of underground storage tank (UST) facilities remediate tanks that were damaged during Superstorm Sandy. The State will be contributing a 10% match of the grant.
This grant is for the remediation of federally regulated USTs, and the funds will broaden the DEP’s ability to “conduct environmental assessments and cleanup of discharges at qualified facilities,” according to DEP Acting Assistant Commissioner for Site Remediation, Mark Pedersen. The funding will also help cover site assessment and discharge cleanup.
