Message from the Assistant Commissioner:
Welcome! The Office of Environmental Management oversees and directs the work related to air quality, solid & hazardous waste, and environmental safety and health. These programs, in coordination with both other DEP programs and state agencies, work to ensure a healthy environment by minimizing pollution from a variety of complex sources.
Consistent with the DEP’s mission to reexamine its priorities and the effectiveness of its programs , I am committed to reviewing the core missions and business practices of each of the programs within Environmental Management to align them with the DEP Vision Statement and create “the foundation for structural change that will make the DEP an effective organization for years to come”. I trust that our paths will cross as Environmental Management makes those structural changes.
I encourage you to utilize this website as a tool to address any questions you may have about our programs.
I look forward to working with you as the DEP strives to improve its efficiency and effectiveness, including the oversight and administration of Environmental Management.
Jane Herndon, Esq.
