Major Luxury Residential Developer, Upper Freehold and Millstone Townships, Monmouth County, NJ

Brilliant was retained by a major luxury residential developer to complete remediation of pesticide and arsenic contaminated soils at a farm. The client planned to redevelop the farm for single-family residential use. The remediation was completed “at peril” with limited oversight by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). The NJDEP issued the No Further Action letters in February 2008 for the soil remediation.


As part of the development process, a variance was needed from the local zoning board to develop a lot for residential use. Brilliant provided project information, such as reports, timelines, and a description of the work completed to the local zoning board and environmental commission for the client. Brilliant appeared before the Millstone Township Zoning Board to provide testimony on the project timeline and the technical aspects of the remediation.
