Community Relations Overview

In support of Contaminated Site Remediation & Redevelopment, the Office of Community Relations (OCR) endeavors to provide effective two-way communication and outreach with the public including federal, state and local officials, as well as concerned citizens, relative to contaminated sites and associated remedial issues.

The Office of Community Relations maintains summaries related to many, but not all, contaminated sites, and these summaries are updated periodically as new information becomes available. The OCR staff acts as a liaison between the various involved entities, (i.e. EPA, DEP, local officials, responsible parties etc.) to address inquiries from the public regarding contaminated sites in their neighborhoods. Details of the active cases are made available through the Community Relations Site List which can be found at:

If you are interested in a site that is not on the list, please call OCR for further assistance at (609) 984-3081. Please press 5 at the prompt to reach the Community Relations Coordinator on duty for the day.
