The Clean Air Council, since
its creation in 1954, serves in an advisory capacity to make
recommendations to the DEP regarding air matters. It consists
of eighteen members, fourteen of which are appointed by the
Governor. Members serve four-year terms, and include the Commissioner
of Health, Commissioner of Community Affairs,
Secretary of Agriculture, and Secretary of Board of Directors, NJ Commerce Commission, ex-officio.
The Clean Air Council is an advisory
body that meets once a month. It is not a division of
the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
If you have questions or concerns
with respect to specific programs of the Department, these should
be addressed directly to that program office. These can
be located either through the NJDEP Web site, or through the
Department's General Information line at 609-777-DEP3 (3373).
