McGowan LLC offers a wide range of services for Public Water Systems, Spillfunds, Private Wells, Licensed Operators and more.
McGowan LLC employs approximately 40 professional licensed operators on a part-time basis. Our licensed operators are all approved by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and hold licenses equal to or superior to that required for the systems for whom they are the licensed operator in charge. They are actively involved in and responsible for the operation, maintenance and effectiveness of the system for our clients.
The operators are responsible for conducting inspections of the system and appurtenances in accordance with the schedule specified by the NJDEP. These inspections ensure that the system is operated and maintained properly and complies with all the laws, rules, regulations, and orders, set forth by the regulatory authorities.
John McGowan has been connected with the New Jersey Spillfund Program for over 25 years. During that period, he has managed over 1,000 Spillfund sites including many of the State’s worst contamination sites. He has long term relationships with the adjusters at the Environmental Claims Administration (ECA) and an intimate knowledge of the rules and procedures for applying for Spillfund compensation.
Some important points are:
Private Well Testing
McGowan LLC has been involved with the Private Well Testing Act since its inception. John McGowan has given numerous seminars to real estate agents and attorneys regarding the application of the law and its impact.
McGowan LLC uses its unique capabilities which include both well water compliance management experience and water treatment expertise combined with a knowledge of and influence with most of the certified water laboratories to provide a "Turn-Key" solution to the Private Well Testing Act that is both comprehensive and cost effective.
Certified laboratories only collect the samples and analyze them. They do not have the experience to recommend appropriate action in the event that the water system exceeds State standards for a particular contaminant. For the price of the analysis alone, McGowan LLC arranges for your sample pickup and analysis, evaluates your results, provides expert advice regarding remediation and, if needed, will arrange for treatment installation with a price assurance guarantee. Once the problem is resolved, McGowan LLC will issue a Water Quality Certificate of Compliance to show your perspective buyers or take to your closing.
