Welcome

Newark is a wonderful city in the NY/NJ metro region. Some relevant stats about Newark's environmental health include:

  • Newark is the only city in the country that has a Cumulative Impact Ordinance — which means getting more data on more issues is important to enforcement.
  • The City of Newark is under a consent decree to fix the combined sewage overflow problem; if it rains more than 10 minutes, the Ironbound neighborhood floods, and any more than that generates a crisis where people can’t get in or out of the neighborhood.
