The Office of Public Outreach, working with DEP's programs and divisions, provides the information and services the public requires from DEP and in whatever medium they prefer - the internet, email, audio, video or print.
One of DEP's goals is to proactively communicate a clear and consistent message both internally and externally. One way we achieve this is by putting together articles and fact sheets for both the general public as well as the regulated community on various topics such as mangrove trimming, stormwater management and how to handle pesticides.
