The NJ Brownfields Interagency Working Group (IAWG) was formed to effectively deliver comprehensive assistance from state and federal agencies to municipalities struggling with brownfield redevelopment challenges. The core team consists of New Jersey Business Action Center’s Office for Planning Advocacy, U.S. EPA Region 2 Brownfields Program, NJ Department of Environmental Protection and the Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR).


The New Jersey Highlands Council is tasked with implementation of the New Jersey Highlands Water Protection and Planning Act of 2004 to provide a regional approach to land use planning that protects the areas resources.


*A brownfield is defined under NJ state law (N.J.S.A. 58:10B-23.d) as "any former or current commercial or industrial site that is currently vacant or underutilized and on which there has been, or there is suspected to have been, a discharge of a contaminant."
