Regional Haze SIP

On August 4, 2009, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) submitted its “State Implementation Plan (SIP) Revision to protect and enhance visibility levels in the Brigantine Wilderness Area of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, a federally designated Class I Area” dated July 2009, to the USEPA. The primary purpose of this SIP revision is to establish the first Reasonable Progress Goal of reaching natural background visibility levels by the year 2064. The SIP revision demonstrates that New Jersey will meet the 2018 Uniform Rate of Progress set for Brigantine Wilderness Area by the USEPA regulations. The remainder of the SIP revision addresses other mandatory SIP elements for regional haze and other related issues.
