This extremely informative and timely course combines the legal principles of ERP permitting, as expressed by recent changes with practical tips for achieving compliance, and avoidance of process “pitfalls” from the viewpoint of both regulators and practitioners.  The panel presentation will be free-flowing with considerable audience participation led by lawyers and scientists from the public and private sectors.  The course assumes a working knowledge of the ERP process and criteria, and it is intended to examine the critical issues that make or break applications, including those subjected to the extraordinary scrutiny of an administrative hearing. Course will also examine the effects of recent reorganizations within DEP and WMDs and what it means for ERP applicants. Audience participation encouraged.
