Watchdogs warily eye rollout of new N.J. cleanup scheme

LYNDHURST, N.J. -- New Jersey is rolling out an ambitious and highly controversial scheme to clean up industrial waste sites, modeled on a Massachusetts program that critics say has a mixed record. The state Department of Environmental Protection is aiming over the next three years to systematically free itself from direct responsibility for cleaning up more than 10,000 polluted brownfields and several Superfund sites. DEP plans to hand over remediation planning and monitoring to contractors hired by owners of contaminated properties.
