Discharge Prevention Program

About Us

The Discharge Prevention Program operates under the authority of the New Jersey Spill Compensation and Control Act, N.J.S.A. 58:10-23.11. The requirements of the program are codified under N.J.A.C. 7:1E, and that regulation serves as the basis for the Program’s work. All facilities and individuals in the State, even homeowners, are subject to the reporting requirements of N.J.A.C. 7:1E-5 should a discharge of a hazardous substance occur. However, the majority of the regulatory requirements apply only to facilities that store 20,000 gallons or more of New Jersey-regulated hazardous substances, excluding petroleum products, or 200,000 gallons of regulated hazardous substances including petroleum products.

What We Do
The Discharge Prevention Program does the following:
  • Reviews Discharge Prevention Containment and Countermeasure (DPCC) and Discharge Cleanup and Removal plans
  • Inspects regulated facilities
  • Administers enforcement actions
