 FAQs 

Why did I receive a certified mail notice from you that talks about a Letter of Interpretation? 

 

This letter informs you that a Letter of Interpretation (Wetland Delineation) has been submitted to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) for a property within 200’ of yours.  The site location map included with your letter identifies the approximate street location of the property.  A Letter of Interpretation is only used to verify the boundary of wetlands on the property.  It does not necessarily mean that the property is going to be developed. 

 

 

Why did I receive a certified mail notice from you that refers to a permit or a waiver? 

 

This letter informs you that a NJDEP General Permit, Individual Permit, or TAW Waiver has been submitted to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) for a property within 200’ of yours.  The site plan included with your letter identifies the proposed development for the property.  If you have any comments you may respond to NJDEP at the address provided in the letter.  You may view a copy of the application in the Municipal Clerk’s office in the municipality in which the project is located or at the NJDEP. 

 

I am trying to develop a piece of property and the Municipality requested a Letter of Interpretation.  What is an LOI and how do I obtain one?

 

The municipality is requesting a document verifying the presence, if any, and location of the wetlands on the property.  This document, an LOI, is only issued by NJDEP.  We can help you with your LOI application.  Call us for help. 

 

 

Can I extend my existing building if I have wetlands on my property, or on the property next door?

 

Yes, there are Statewide General Permits that allow an addition to an existing building.  Please contact us if you would like a consultation. 

 

 

If my underground heating oil storage tank is leaking, what should I do?

 

The tank should be removed by a certified tank removal company.  NJDEP should be contacted and the spill should be cleaned up properly under the direct supervision of NJDEP certified personal.  Please contact us if you would like a consultation. 

 

I want to buy a property that was once used for agricultural purposes.  What should I do?

 

We recommend sampling for arsenic, lead and pesticides.  These are the contaminants that may remain in the soil on site.  Please contact us if you would like a consultation. 

 

 

Before purchasing a property, what should I do to evaluate any environmental concerns on the property?

 

We recommend performing a Phase I Environmental Assessment on the property.  This assessment conforms to the ASTM Standards and examines a property for environmental concerns.  Please contact us if you would like a consultation. 

 

 

I think I have mold in my house.  What should I do?

 

The problem with mold is finding the source.  Removing the mold may not stop the growth.  A detailed analysis is needed to determine the source of the problem.  Please contact us if you would like a consultation.
