Welcome to Jersey WaterCheck’s evaluation center — the Benchmark Hub.

The Benchmark Hub helps utility managers and state leaders dive into the factors that contribute to the need for water infrastructure investment. Here you will find the details, measures, reports, results, and data that we’ve gathered for every water and wastewater system in the state.

Number of full-time equivalent staff positions at the NJ Department of Environmental Protection that are dedicated to water issues (state-level)

This metric shows the number of full-time equivalent staff in the NJDEP Divisions of Water Supply, Water Quality and Water Monitoring, including successor operations. "Full-time equivalent" refers to the ratio of total number of paid hours during full time divided by number of working hours in the full time period (usually Monday-Friday). This metric provides insight into the state's staff capacity to implement and enforce regulations on water and wastewater infrastructure. (Note that some NJDEP employees in other divisions have water resources functions, such as for cleanup of hazardous waste sites, but are not responsible for water utility or water resources management functions. Information technology also affects capacity.)
