It has been announced by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (“DEP”) that the New Brunswick Water Department has repeatedly filed false water data reports. These reports include falsified water quality tests, incorrectly calculated test results, and failure to notify the public of failures to meet water quality standards. The DEP news release, available on the DEP website, notes that no direct evidence has been found to indicate that the public health has been negatively impacted by these falsified reports.
The DEP, aided in its investigation by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), has taken swift action in response to the discovered infractions, filing Administrative Orders and a Notice of Civil Penalty Assessment against Edward O’Rourke, the now-suspended licensed operator of the New Brunswick Water Department.
"I highly recommend this law firm because they were responsive and sensitive to my needs and won. I chose this firm after having talked to 6 other firms because within minutes of contacting them I was able to speak to Mr. Lieberman himself. Mr. Lieberman and the junior attorneys did not make me feel small just because I am an individual, a mother, and not a big corporation. My phone calls & emails were returned promptly. They listened to exactly what I wanted & delivered. The defendant was nasty and ignored us and at times I felt like this was going nowhere. The attorneys worked well to reach a settlement that exceeded my expectations. Mr. Lieberman is a very seasoned lawyer who has compassion for his clients. The best thing about Mr. Lieberman is that he trains his staff to have that same level of compassion and respect for clients. " - Z.B., Jersey City, NJ
"I would like to personally thank Lieberman & Blecher for their help and advice to my family in dealing with an environmental cleanup issue. When it is a big company and their legal team against a small property owner, I have learned that you need an expert to protect your property and your rights. The team at Lieberman & Blecher did this for my family in a professional and cost effective manner. I would certainly recommend this firm to anyone in need of legal assistance" - C.K., Woodbridge, NJ
