Contaminated Sites

The environment of New Jersey is incredibly diverse:  large urban centers, suburbs, the Jersey shore, acres of farmland, and even a piece of one of the oldest mountain ranges on earth, the Appalachians. In spite of its long history of environmental contamination in some of these areas, New Jersey also has an impressive record of cleaning up and improving its environment, as well as maintaining its natural resources. Due to our history, we strongly encourage prospective buyers to investigate the property and neighborhood of a home or business to avoid future surprises. The NJ Department of Environmental Protection maintains an extensive database on environmental sites that is accessible online.  You can search their database, Dataminer, to determine if there are current or past environmental conditions of concern within and around your area of interest.
