Geoscience Research

The Geoscience Research Section is responsible for various activities for NJGWS and NJDEP. Our research scientists, geologists, and environmental specialists conduct monitoring, perform studies, and provide expertise in groundwater quality, geochemistry, borehole logging, and near-surface geophysics. This section is the NJDEP lead for seismic and vibracore offshore sand resource studies, New Well and Synthetic Organic Compound testing, and is home to the NJDEP Drilling Program.

Water Supply Modeling & Planning Section

The Water Supply Modeling and Planning Section is responsible for analyzing NJ's water resources, infrastructure, and supply network, and initiating and developing long-term water-supply plans and policies. The goal is a comprehensive water resource management strategy for New Jersey's groundwater and surface water supplies that ensures current and future availability and increases overall resiliency to respond to drought and climate change related stresses.

Geological Mapping and Coastal Geology Section

The Geological Mapping and Coastal Geology Section is responsible for the development of on-shore surficial and bedrock maps and off-shore geological maps. The mapping is partially funded by annual grants from the US Geological Survey. Other maps such as county-wide aquifer maps, historic fill, and karst maps, among others, are also produced. These geologic and coastal geology maps provide the basic data needed to address natural resource and environmental concerns within the DEP. Governmental agencies, consulting professionals, academia, non-profit organizations, and the public use the maps as a tool for making environmental decisions and recommendations and for conducting scientific research.

Hydrogeology Analysis Section

The Hydrogeology Analysis Section is responsible for performing hydrologic evaluations of new water supply sources, including impacts to existing users and water supplies. This section also assesses the movement of saltwater and contaminants impacting the State's water resources and utilizes computer models to characterize aquifers and delineate wellhead protection areas.
