The state's program is very similar to the federal Superfund program, and it includes a funding mechanism. Superfund is also closely related to the state's property transfer law. See the national section SUPERFUND for more information on the federal program.

Administration and enforcement. DEP administers and enforces the state site remediation rules in New Jersey. EPA administers and enforces the federal Superfund rules in the state. Qualified licensed site remediation professionals (LSRPs) oversee the day-to-day management of site remediation.
