The DEP is following our guidance for Clean Fill, and supplementing that with additional “audit “sampling. DEP’s guidance for clean fill is on line at http://www.nj.gov/dep/srp/guidance/srra/fill_protocol.pdf
. Section 6.3 outlines the sampling requirements for material from an undisturbed geologic formation, which is what is being used at the site. Although additional sampling is not needed, DEP has decided to take additional samples periodically during soil importation. As of today, we’ve taken three audit samples, but we’ve only received the data on the first sample. That data was provided to the Town’s consultant last week, and as we continue to receive the data, we’ll forward it along.
