- Community Right to Know Act (CRTK) Environmental Justice (EJ) Stressors in New Jersey [New Jersey]
- New Jersey's Environmental Justice (EJ) Law identifies 7 specific categories of "environmental or public health stressors". Sites that manufacture, process, store or use hazardous substances are in the category of conditions that may cause potential public health impacts as accidental releases of substances stored at these sites could impact public health in the community. Under the EJ Law a regulated facility prepares an environmental justice impact statement that assesses the potential environmental and public health stressors associated with the proposed new or expanded facility, or with the existing major source, as applicable, including any adverse environmental or public health stressors that cannot be avoided if the permit is granted, and the environmental or public health stressors already borne by the overburdened community as a result of existing conditions located in or affecting the overburdened community. Emergency Planning Environmental Stressors contribute to existing conditions. The sites included in this file are required to prepare emergency or preparedness plans due to the types and quantities of substances manufactured, processed, stored or used. These plans are required under three laws: the Toxic Catastrophe Prevention Act (TCPA), the Community and Worker Right to Know Act (CWRTK), and the Spill Compensation and Control Act. The overall goal of planning is to reduce the possibility of discharges or releases of hazardous substances to the environment and minimize the consequences if they do occur.
