What’s Going On

Current Initiatives
The Contamination Assessment and Reduction Project (CARP)

The Contamination Assessment and Reduction Project (CARP) is a landmark, multi-decade project bringing together federal, state, and non-government partners to better understand and reduce contamination that is causing environmental harm and economic hardships within the New York/New Jersey Harbor. The project which originated in 1999 was designed to identify the sources of contaminants causing dredged material disposal problems, and to determine the length of time needed for dredged material to meet ocean disposal criteria.
