David A. Roth will lecture at the “Discharge Prevention Program: Compliance in New Jersey” hosted by Rutgers University’s New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station on May 13, 2015 at Rutgers’ New Brunswick campus. Mr. Roth’s presentation will focus on “Court Decisions Related to Spill Act Liability for Discharges.”
As part of State regulations, major facilities are required to prepare, submit and update Discharge Prevention Containment and Countermeasure (DPCC) plans and Discharge Cleanup and Removal (DCR) plans with the NJDEP. This program will provide guidance on preparing updates to current DPCC and DCR plans, ensuring compliance with the plans and NJDEP rules and a discussion of the federal Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure program, and more.
