Catherine McCabe named next NJDEP Commissioner


TRENTON - New Jersey Conservation Foundation applauds Governor-Elect Murphy for selecting Catherine McCabe as the next Commissioner of the NJ Department of Environmental Protection. She brings a wealth of experience, and strong commitment to protecting New Jersey's environment. NJ Conservation Foundation is confident that under her leadership the NJDEP will fully enforce environmental laws and regulations, better protect and restore our precious public lands and natural resources, and help move New Jersey toward a clean energy future.

Catherine McCabe is an environmental lawyer and former Acting Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). McCabe worked in the Department of Justice for 22 years, specializing in environmental issues. In 2005, she began working for the Environmental Protection Agency as Deputy Assistant Administrator of the Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance. She has also served as a judge on the EPA's Court of Appeals and most recently as Deputy Regional Administrator of the EPA's Region 2 in New York City. NJ Conservation looks forward to working with her when she takes on her new position in January.

Since 1960, New Jersey Conservation has protected 125,000 acres of open space - from the Highlands to the Pine Barrens to the Delaware Bayshore, from farms to forests to urban and suburban parks.
