    CT Remediation Standard Regulations (RSRs)

    Continuing Education Credits (CECs):

    The Connecticut State Board of Examiners of Environmental Professionals (LEP Board) has approved this course for 8.0 hours of continuing education credits (CTLEP-368). This seminar was significantly revised in 2014 to reflect changes to the RSRs that were adopted in June 2013. This course can be claimed for LEP Continuing Education credits even if you have taken previous versions of the seminar (course numbers CTLEP-005 and CTLEP-005(rev).), as it was issued a new course number in 2014.

    Time and Location: 

    This seminar will be held on March 29, 2018 and runs from 8 AM - 5 PM at the CTCPA Education Center, 716 Brook Street, Suite 100, Rocky Hill, CT 06067. For google map of location, see: https://goo.gl/maps/FFNLMU2HSpR2.

    Please arrive by 7:30 AM for registration. A continental breakfast and lunch will be served.

    Instructors: 

    CT DEEP Staff including Carl Gruszczak, Kevin Neary, Craig Bobrowiecki and Amanda Killeen.

    Fees: 

    • EPOC Members: $225
    • Non-members: $275 (consider joining EPOC at this time to receive the member rate for this program)
    • Gov't Employee/Students: $112.50

    Course Description:

    EPOC, in cooperation with the CT DEEP, invites you to a one-day seminar focusing on the Remediation Standard Regulations (RSRs). Connecticut's Remediation Standard Regulations apply to actions taken to remediate polluted soil or a ground-water plume at or emanating from a release area pursuant to Chapter 445 or 446k of the General Statutes including, but not limited to, any such action required to be taken or verified by a Licensed Environmental Professional (LEP). This seminar has been designed as two separate parts of instruction -- the first part (morning session) will be devoted to those aspects of the RSR that are related to soils; the second part (afternoon session) will include those sections of the RSR that apply to groundwater, including the regulations related to Environmental Land Use Restrictions.


    The course will be of significant use to any practitioner who must use the RSR in the course of their professional activities to evaluate the environmental condition of properties throughout Connecticut. It has also been designed for those individuals who are planning to take the upcoming exam for Licensed Environmental Professionals.
