Committees & Workgroups

The New York-New Jersey Harbor & Estuary Program (HEP) has an overall structure known as the "Management Conference" authorized by the Federal Clean Water Act, Section 320. This "Conference" provides an open forum for discussion, planning, and action on environmental issues facing the Estuary. The committees and work groups are made up of many government, academic, private, and non-profit groups, as well as individual citizens. The HEP Program Office provides support to the Management Conference.
