Camden City Initiative

Read the Press Release (10/10/2002)
More information and pictures about this initiative (pdf format)

In October 2002, Compliance and Enforcement conducted its first ever, week-long, multi-media enforcement sweep in Camden. Working with county officials, the New Jersey State Police, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the DEP mobilized more than 70 inspectors and conducted 764 investigations. Ninety eight facilities were found in violation, 63 of which had major violations. No violations were discovered at 498 facilities and 168 facilities targeted were no longer in business. Inspectors found non-compliance with laws addressing water quality, solid and hazardous waste, air pollution, and illegal land use activities. A quick return to compliance was observed in many cases

Information gathered during the initiative was entered into the department's database, New Jersey Environmental Management System (NJEMS).
