DEP ENHANCES PUBLIC ACCESS TO ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE INFORMATION

(07/04) TRENTON - The public can track the latest activity of state environmental investigators through a new information service now available on the Department of Environmental Protection's Web site, DEP Commissioner Lisa P. Jackson announced today.

"We've made it even easier for the public to find out what we are doing in New Jersey's neighborhoods to make sure the laws and regulations that safeguard public health and our environment are obeyed," Commissioner Jackson said. "We believe that the more residents know, the better partners in environmental stewardship they can be."

The new field-activity blotter offers the public an at-a-glance listing of all site visits the DEP's Compliance & Enforcement investigators have conducted during the past 14 days to evaluate compliance with environmental laws and to respond to residents' concerns or complaints.

Information in the field-activity blotter is arranged by county, and municipalities are listed alphabetically. The report features the location for each site visit as well as the date and the program of interest, such as air, water quality, hazardous waste and land use - among others.

The site-visit report complements the DEP's Enforcement Blotter, which lists enforcement action taken within the past 14 days in response to environmental violations.
