About the Bureau

Established in 1912 as part of New Jersey's commitment to monitoring shellfish growing waters, the bureau has continually provided the state with consistent, long-term monitoring and reporting of coastal water quality.

The Bureau's main office is located in Leeds Point, New Jersey. This location is just outside of Atlantic City, New Jersey and is a central location to most of the State's coastal waters. On most work days, the Bureau's boat captains collect water samples from the State's coastal waters. They deliver the samples to the Bureau facilities in Leeds Point for analysis. Results of these tests are evaluated by the Bureau's assessment staff to produce reports on coastal water quality.
