Updating our previous post, as of the April 6, 2020 issue of the New Jersey Register, NJDEP has not yet published its anticipated Final Rule setting drinking water and groundwater cleanup standards for PFOA and PFOS, adding those substances to NJDEP’s list of hazardous substances under the Spill Act, and amending other rules related to PFOA, PFOS and PFNA. The Office of Administrative Law has confirmed that NJDEP timely conveyed the rule for publication, but did not offer an estimated timeline for publication. Under New Jersey law, the rule is not effective until published. We have updated the original post to reflect the latest information – stay tuned for further updates as we learn more about the timing of the rule’s publication.
