Welcome to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection's online reports portal, NJDEP Data Miner. Within you will find a variety of reports that will provide you with up to the minute results from many different environmental media and subjects. In order to provide flexibility, many of these reports require the user to enter some criteria, which will result in a customized document.

NJDEP has reports on the following topics:

  • 2008 Permit Extension Act
    This category contains reports related to the 2008 Permit Extension Act. The 2008 Permit Extension Act was signed into law on September 6, 2008 with the intent of offering economic relief to various segments of the New Jersey economy, particularly the real estate and construction sectors. The Act allowed for permit extensions of up to three and one half years assuming the criteria for inclusion is met.

  • Air Quality Permitting and Reporting
    This area contains reports about Air Quality Permitting and Emission Statements:
    • The Air Quality Permitting Program is responsible for permitting and testing stationary sources of air pollution to ensure they do not adversely affect air quality. To accomplish this, the staff of the AQPP reviews air pollution control permit applications, evaluates air quality modeling and risk assessments, and audits stack emissions measurements.
    • Emission Statements are intended to help the state agencies in their reporting and analysis of emissions into the outdoor air. All emission estimates reported on Emission Statements will be used in tracking the State's progress toward meeting the mandatory emission reduction targets specified as a percentage reduction from the 1990 base year inventory. This tracking will help to monitor the progress that areas make toward attainment of the ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard and will be used as an indicator to measure the State's progress in maintaining a healthy environment.

  • Community Right to Know

    This area contains reports about Community Right to Know:

    The Community Right to Know (CRTK) program is responsible for collecting and disseminating data on hazardous substances produced, stored or used at companies in New Jersey. These data are collected on the annual CRTK Survey. The CRTK program collects data on New Jersey CRTK regulated hazardous substances from facilities in industry codes covered under the CRTK regulations, as well as on non-New Jersey CRTK regulated hazardous substances from facilities regulated under the federal Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA). The following CRTK reports have been created. Please note that CRTK Surveys are due March 1 and include data for the previous calendar year.

    • The first report entitled Active CRTK Facilities with Inventory Above Threshold provides information on active facilities regulated by New Jersey CRTK reporting requirements with inventory of CRTK regulated environmental hazardous substances (EHS's) above reporting thresholds. Due to domestic security concerns, reports must be generated one facility at a time, and in order to generate a report the facility name and street address must be entered as it appears in the program database. Therefore, you may need to utilize the report below entitled CRTK General Facility Information to obtain the name and street address as it is used in the database.

    • The second report entitled Active or Non-Active CRTK Facilities provides information on all active or non-active facilities that according to our database, reported EHS inventory below the applicable thresholds, or reported that they do not have any inventory of EHS's, as well as those facilities regulated by the Federal Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA) reporting requirements only. These reports can be run by using the Facility Identification (FACID) Number, all or part of a facility name or street address, or by municipality. You may need to use the report below entitled CRTK General Facility Information to find this information.

    • The third report entitled CRTK General Facility Information provides the mailing and physical address, the Facility Type, Status, Eligibility and User Status for all facilities in the CRTK database. Only those facilities that fit all of the following criteria are required to submit a CRTK Survey: For New Jersey regulated facilities - Type equal to Regulated, Status equal to Active, Eligibility equal to CRTK/RPPR and User Status equal to User Above Threshold. For EPCRA regulated facilities - Eligibility equal to EPCRA Only and Status equal to Active. This report is searchable by Municipality and Report Year.

  • NJPDES Permitting Program
    The NJPDES Program protects New Jersey's ground and surface water quality by assuring the proper treatment and discharge of wastewater (and its residuals) and stormwater from various types of facilities and activities. To accomplish this, permits are issued limiting the mass and/or concentration of pollutants which may be discharged into ground water, streams, rivers, and the ocean. The types of regulated facilities can range from very small users such as campgrounds, schools, and shopping centers to larger industrial and municipal wastewater dischargers. GIS shapefiles for the NJPDES Surface Water and Ground Water Discharge locations can be downloaded from the NJDEP GIS at this location.

  • Site Remediation

    The Site Remediation Program is responsible for the remediation of contaminated sites in New Jersey. The Program includes publicly funded and privately funded sites, Superfund sites, brownfields, and other more specific bureaus that focus on underground storage tanks (UST) and the Industrial Site Recovery Act (ISRA). However, The Program’s role is not limited to the oversight and cleanup of sites with confirmed contamination. The Program also handles cases where contamination is suspected, but not yet confirmed. In addition, the Program also has substantial non-remedial responsibilities such as the Initial Notice Section, which is responsible for UST regulated facilities, ISRA and UST application, UST certifications and other administrative responsibilities.

    Please be advised that any report posted on Data Miner should not be used as a sole source of information when conducting a due diligence investigation into whether or not a particular site is contaminated. The fact that a site of interest is not listed in a report does not constitute a due diligence search on behalf of a prospective purchaser or interested person.

    • Licensed Site Remedial Professional Information
    • On May 7, 2009, Governor Jon Corzine signed the Site Remediation Reform Act N.J.S.A. 58:10C – 1 (“SRRA”) into law. One of the provisions of the law establishes a program for the licensing of Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (“LSRPs”) who will have responsibility for the oversight of environmental investigations and cleanups.

      This DataMiner sub-category includes a list of individuals possessing an effective LSRP license, and reports summarizing cases that LSRPs are retained at and reports submitted by LSRPs

    • Site Search Reports

      This category is designed to enable the requestor to find one specific site or Program Interest (PI) name via information entered into a "prompt field" by the requestor. If the requestor knows the site Name or PI Name or part of the PI Name; the PI Address or part of the PI Address; or the PI Number, a search can be performed. The search will retrieve a list of all active SRWM sites, which contain the data that was entered into the "prompt field". The resulting lists of active SRWM sites include contaminated sites as well as sites that only require DEP permits and / or other administrative information. Thus, it is important to realize that the discovered sites may or may not be contaminated. Once a final selection is made, the site of interest can be selected and reviewed. Further information can be obtained by linking to the Site Detail Report.

      The Site Detail Report further breaks down the site selection by cases; one site may include several cases. Cases are usually cleanups that are being conducted by different bureaus at the same time or at varying times in the site's history. The progress of a case is often tracked by the documents that are being reviewed; therefore, an active site can include closed cases and closed documents.

      Case Tracking Reports

      This category is designed to enable the requestor to find upcoming and past due tasks. These reports are intended to assist persons responsible for conducting remediation and LSRPs in evaluating due dates for required submittals, and whether the Department is in receipt of these submittals. If the requester knows the PI Number, the name of the organization conducting the remediation or License Site Professional (LSRP) License Number, a search can be performed. The search will retrieve a list of cases for which past due tasks, as well as upcoming due tasks, are identified based on the data entered in the Department’s data management system.

      These reports do not capture every regulatory or mandatory timeframe due date established in Site Remediation rules (i.e., ARRCS, UST, ISRA or Technical Requirements). In some instances, the Department may only become aware of a due date after the due date has passed and for which these timeframes apply. In addition, the initial Remediation Investigation Report (RIR) and Remedial Action Report (RAR) due dates (as of June 2013) reflect the most stringent default due dates based upon information available to the Department (i.e. date remediation was initiated, whether soil and/or ground water is impacted). These dates are used to track compliance unless the timeframe are otherwise “lengthened” as per the rules based on site specific information or due dates are extended in accordance with applicable regulations. As a result, the RIR and RAR due dates may change over time as proper, site specific requests are made to the Department to either lengthen the timeframe or extend the due dates Also, the user should be aware that new information regarding cases is provided to the Department daily, and should therefore check these reports frequently for updates. Please note that May 7, 2014 RIR due dates are not subject to lengthening or extension.

      These reports are not substitutes for the person responsible for conducting remediation and the LSRP knowing site conditions, applying the requirements of all applicable regulations and statutes and following all reporting obligations.
