Shellfish Growing Water Classification - Prohibited
Adopted Amendment: N.J.A.C. 7:12-2.1

Take notice that the NJ Department of Environmental Protection adopted the amendment to N.J.A.C. 7:12-2.1. The adopted amendment was published in the New Jersey Register on February 21, 2006.

These regulations affect the classification of New Jersey waters concerning acceptability for harvesting shellfish.

The adopted amendment downgraded a portion of the Atlantic coastal area east of the effluent outfall for the Township of Neptune Sewage Authority in Monmouth County (66 acres) from Approved to Prohibited. The change in classification was a result of the need for a precautionary buffer around the Neptune Sewage effluent outfall pipe. This buffer was necessary to maintain public health and safety practices.
