Here is what our DEP colleagues have to say about the services of the IRC:

"I am a microbiologist charged with providing applied research and expertise to the Department...This work would simply not be possible without the assistance of the Information Resource Center.  The IRC is the only place that can obtain the unbiased scientific information I need to answer.. questions."

Tom Atherholt, Research Scientist, Division of Science, Research and Technology, Environmental Planning & Science.

"The Responsible Party Investigations Unit routinely uses services and resources at the Information Resource Center to support cost recovery investigations and enforcement actions for the Site Remediation Program...The staff at the Information Resource Center is very familiar with specific types of information needed..The services of the Information Resource Center have helped to eliminate time consuming paper searches formerly used by the investigative staff."

Robert Beretsky, Division of Responsible Party Site Remediation, Bureau of Fund Management Compliance & Recovery, Responsible Party Investigations Unit

"Biologists from the Endangered and Nongame Species Program have received a great deal of assistance from the IRC specifically with scientific literature required to help design field methods...The assistance we receive..is invaluable to our biologists. IRC staff are knowledgeable, interested, and extremely helpful."

Amanda Dey, Senior Biologist, Endangered and Nongame Species Program, Division of Fish and Wildlife, Natural & Historic Resources

"I always received prompt and timely reports which were very helpful in research projects supporting air permitting program initiatives.  IRC services went beyond expectations and included helpful suggestions for direction to further research." 

Bill Kuehne, Bureau of Air Quality Engineering, Air Quality Permitting Program, Environmental Regulation

"..The IRC has been an invaluable tool.  Biological monitoring is an emerging and dynamic field and our ability to stay on top of the latest science is crucial to the development and execution of our programs. The IRC has helped our bureau obtain 100% of the requested articles...The quality of our bureau's work depends on them."

Brian Margolis, Freshwater and Biological Monitoring, Environmental Planning & Science

"..I have relied on the IRC to help gather information that supports our program in settling natural resource damage claims and restoring natural resources injured by oil spills and hazardous waste releases."

John Sacco, Office of Natural Resource Restoration, Natural & Historic Resources

"..The knowledgeable and alert staff of the IRC often proactively notify me of papers of particular interest to me before they appear...Without these unique and personal services, I and my colleagues in the DEP working on mercury and other issues of critical importance to New Jersey, would not be able to function to keep New Jersey in the forefront of environmental science and environmental science policy.

Alan Stern, Chief, Bureau for Risk Analysis, Division of Science, Research and Technology, Environmental Planning & Science

"The Office Air Quality Management includes the State Implementation Plan Preparation, Air Monitoring, Diesel Retrofit, and Inspection and Maintenance Groups. These groups work on various aspects of the New Jersey air program. One aspect involves the synthesis of air quality data and the use of mathematical models to determine the sources of air pollution, the development of emission inventories and air quality modeling using those inventories. I have, as well as many of the Office's staff, on many occasions, taken advantage of the information/research services of DEP's IRC. I have always received prompt and timely reports."

Tonalee Key, Office of Air Quality Management, Environmental Regulations Program
