Comment: DEP shall notify CAI in writing including USPS mail, email and phone call. Audit appointments should be change from two weeks to four weeks.
Also, DEP shall issue any NOV within four weeks of the site audit. Currently, DEP inspector are issuing NOV up to 8 months after the site audit. This is not acceptable. Attached is our NOV.
