Baron personnel recently attended a two-hour New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) webinar on the 2015 Community Right to Know (cRTK).  This webinar provided an overview of the reporting requirements, examples of hazardous substance inventory threshold determinations, as well as a demonstration of the electronic report system.
