Unfortunately, our jurisdiction ends at the river edge; however, we have a policy in place with NJDEP to notify the PA DEP of any odor that is suspected as originating in Pennsylvania.

The below documents are being provided to the complainants. These documents contain our odor investigation protocol and numbers to call to issue a complaint:
