About the Division: Managing New Jersey’s land is a critical function of the Department of Environmental Protection’s overall environmental protection strategy. In recognition of the intimate tie between land use and the health and quality of our streams, estuaries, coastal waters, wetlands, wildlife habitat and our drinking water, the New Jersey legislature has charged the Department with regulating land use activities.
