In order to encourage the timely and efficient cleanup of sites contaminated with radioactive materials, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection revised its Sampling Procedures Manual to follow the MARSSIM (NRC 2000) methodology. This was done concurrently with the proposal and subsequent adoption of its Soil Remediation Standards for Radioactive Materials (New Jersey Administrative Code Title 7, Department of Environmental Protection, Chapter 28 Radiation Protection Programs, Subchapter 12, Soil Remediation Standards for Radioactive Materials).
