Planning Issues

Municipalities are making changes to Master Plans and Ordinances all the time. Pinelands Preservation Alliance monitors planning changes both at the local level and during the certification process which follows at the NJ Pinelands Commission.

Barnegat Bay Restoration

The Barnegat Bay/Little Egg Harbor (BB/LEH) estuary is suffering from eutrophication due to the over-enrichment of nutrients from watershed sources as well as atmospheric sources. Impacts to BB/LEH include reduced submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV), algae blooms, infestations by parasitic epiphytes, loss or drastic deterioration of shellfish populations, and alteration of the Bay’s fish communities.
