The NJSEA’s campus is located at:

Richard W. DeKorte Park
One DeKorte Park Plaza
P.O. Box 640
Lyndhurst, NJ 07071

The park is named after the late State Assemblyman Richard W. DeKorte, who was instrumental in passing the legislation creating the agency. Constructed in 1982, the offices became a symbolic and literal barrier between unregulated landfills and the preservation of the Hackensack River’s ecosystem.
