State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection
Cover - State of the Environment 2000 The Department of Environmental Protection is committed to managing New Jersey's environment to ensure clean air, clean and plentiful waters, safe and abundant open space, and an overall high quality of life.

To manage our environment we must be able to measure it. That means using sound science to assess the current state of our environment, evaluating the effectiveness of past efforts by looking at historic improvement trends, developing goals and strategies for future improvement, and forging partnerships with our constituents to meet our targets.

Released in November 2001, New Jersey's Environment 2000 is the second state of the environment report for New Jersey. It is one in a series of interrelated documents that uses environmental indicators to help us provide a comprehensive look at the state’s environmental quality, achievements as well as remaining challenges to citizens of New Jersey.
