NJ Acts to Reduce Nutrient Pollution in Barnegat Bay
The ecological health of Barnegat Bay is in decline, mostly resulting from human activities.

In December 2010, the New Jersey Legislature enacted three statutes designed to comprehensively address the situation. Gordon Duus, Chair of the Environmental Department of Cole Schotz, recently had an article on this subject published in the February 28, 2011 issue of the New Jersey Law Journal.
