Bill requiring lab documents on soil contamination passes in committee

TRENTON – The Assembly Environment and Sold Waste Committee released bill A3633, which would require soil removal project documents to include lab reports on the level of contamination found in the soil.

The bill states that in lieu of a statement, a line item containing the cost of testing, and if needed, disposing of the soil, could be included.

Evan Piscatelli, who represented the Utility Transportation Contractors Association, testified before the committee, saying he is in favor of the bill.

“It is a great step in the direction of transparency,” he said.

He added that it will no longer prompt the project bidders to guess, avoiding them from inflating costs.
