PUBLIC CAN INSTANTLY LEARN PROGRESS OF PERMIT APPLICATIONS THROUGH NEW FEATURE ON DEP WEB SITE

(07/09) TRENTON - For the first time, the public can use the Department of Environmental Protection's Web site to get direct, up-to-the-minute information on the status of applications for DEP permits, Commissioner Lisa P. Jackson announced today.

"Our new, online Permit Progress Report is one more way we're putting technology to work for residents and for everyone who does business in New Jersey," Commissioner Jackson said. "Permit applicants can now find out immediately if the review process is right on track, and that kind of real-time information should make a positive difference in their decision making."

The Web-site tool provides at-a-glance details on permit applications from receipt to the final decision and specifies timelines for the entire review. It uses red text to denote when the permit-application review has been stopped for administrative or technical deficiencies, and green text to indicate when information was received to correct the deficiency and to restart the review process.

Further, the electronic report identifies DEP staff members assigned to handle various aspects of the permit-application review and the dates those tasks were completed. It also offers a contact name and telephone number for answers to questions about pending permits.
