Message from the State Geologist

Since the mid-1800's, the New Jersey Geological Survey has experienced many changes. The mission of the Survey has recently been expanded to include water resource planning and regulatory functions. These responsibilities have been added to the geoscience mapping, research and interpretive roles traditionally overseen at the Survey. While the Water Allocation and Well Permitting programs have always been supported by the Survey, these NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) regulatory programs are now its direct responsibility. With this expanded role, the Survey will continue to provide governmental agencies, the business community and the public with information necessary to address environmental concerns and make economic decisions.

The Survey's name has changed to reflect these added initiatives. Now known as the New Jersey Geological and Water Survey, it is organized into two Bureaus: the Bureau of Water Resources and Geoscience, led by Bureau Chief David Pasicznyk, will continue to meet the more traditional role of the Survey, and the Bureau of Water Allocation and Well Permitting, led by Bureau Chief Terry Pilawski, will manage the water regulatory program.

As the State Geologist, my direct functions have also expanded to include coordinating NJDEP input to the Delaware River Basin Commission, as well as providing information on issues associated with natural gas drilling processes such as hydraulic fracturing.

New initiatives include several alternative energy programs.  A compilation of geothermal resources is supported by a grant from the USDOE to the Association of American State Geologists.  The Survey has assisted in the State initiative to site offshore wind energy.  In partnership with the neighboring states the Survey has assessed the potential for subsurface sequestration of carbon dioxide in geological formations   

Maps and reports are available to the public in printed and digital format through the Survey website. GIS data is available via electronic transfer from our Digital Geodata Series . A publications order form is available on the web or upon request to: Map & Publications, PO 420, Mail Code 29-01, Trenton, N.J. 08625-0420. Unpublished information is provided at cost by writing to Dr. Karl Muessig, State Geologist, N.J. Geological and Water Survey, PO 420, Mail Code 29-01, Trenton, N.J. 08625-0420. Staff are available to answer your questions 8:00AM-5:00 PM Monday through Friday by calling 609-292-1185.

Student Intern Program

Student Intern Program

The Survey is soliciting for student interns to work on a wide variety of projects. Many of these projects could be adapted to term paper topics. All projects will provide valuable hands-on experience. Examples of current projects that could benefit from intern involvement are:

Stratigraphy of glacial materials in buried valleys
GIS mapping of aquifer recharge areas
GIS digital geologic mapping
Analysis of pollution-site geophysical data
Offshore Research

Interns should be college juniors or seniors in, or graduates of geological sciences, water resources, and geography programs. Most of the work will be in the Survey offices in Trenton, but some could take place elsewhere. The Survey is a regulatory-support and research organization in the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
