Our quality of life in New Jersey is intrinsically tied
to our state’s rich natural resources. Whether casting
a fishing line into a clear stream or having access to clean
and plentiful drinking water, our environment provides us
the basic requisites of life which can not be taken for
When pollution injures or destroys our natural resources,
we are deprived of so very much. President Theodore Roosevelt
once said, “the nation behaves well if it treats
the natural resources as assets which it must turn over
to the next generation increased; and not impaired in value.”
The DEP is committed to restoring injured or lost natural
resources through its Office of Natural Resource Restoration.

program and how it works to improve our quality of life.
