Submerged Aquatic Vegetation

The below detailed maps depict habitat of Submerged Aquatic Vegetation (SAV) in New Jersey for areas documented by the Department as previously and currently supporting regulated SAV. For a complete review of a particular site, all maps within the time series for that area should be consulted. For example, a map from 1979 shows the area in question as a mapped habitat area for SAV, while a newer chart does not show mapped habitat, the area is still considered SAV habitat and subject to the SAV rules as such.

It should be noted that these maps do not include undocumented areas that may also support regulated species of SAV or SAV habitat. These areas, which are not depicted on these maps, are also regulated as SAV habitat by the Division of Land Use Regulation. Conclusive evidence concerning the presence/absence of SAV or SAV habitat requires site inspections and habitat assessments, preferably at several points in time during the SAV growing season.

Therefore, these SAV maps alone are not sufficient to determine the presence/absence of regulated SAV habitat. This is a compilation of data merely for informational purposes. The NJDEP does not warrant or guarantee the quality or completeness of the content on this website. State of New Jersey shall not be held liable for improper or incorrect use of the data described and/or contained herein. This disclaimer applies both to individual use of the data and aggregate use with other data.
