The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection is moving science into action within the Barnegat Bay watershed in support of the Department's priority of using the best available science to protect New Jersey's waters. The Barnegat Bay Restoration, Enhancement, and Protection Strategy is built upon the data, modeling results, and research that emerged from the 2010 Ten Point Plan, also known as Barnegat Bay: Phase One.
The Strategy has four categories, which are restoration, enhancement, protection, and monitoring/assessment. Each action and objective has a specified timeframe associated to it: short-term, mid-term, or long-term.
