This bill requires the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), in consultation with the Department of Transportation (DOT), to study the vibrations caused by vehicles traveling along routes used for transporting material dredged from the Delaware River. The bill requires the study to include an analysis of the effects of such vibrations upon residential and commercial buildings, roads, and other infrastructure. The bill also requires the DEP to analyze the financial impacts of transporting material dredged from the Delaware River, including any potential financial loss to businesses or impact on liability insurance. The bill requires the DEP, in consultation with the DOT, to prepare and submit a written report to the Legislature regarding the study within 18 months after the date the bill is enacted into law. The bill provides that the report must include recommendations concerning the transportation of dredged material and a summary and analysis of any similar or related studies conducted by the federal government, other state or local governments, or private entities. The bill requires the DEP to further report on the financial impacts of transporting material dredged from the Delaware River, and to make recommendations if appropriate. The bill provides that the DEP is entitled to call to its assistance and avail itself of the services of the employees of any State, county, or municipal department, authority, board, bureau, commission, agency, or entity, or of Rutgers, The State University, or any other public institution of higher education in the State, as may be required to conduct the study and analysis.
