The Highlands of Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania

The Highlands Regional Study: Connecticut and Pennsylvania 2010 Update depicts that the boundary of the Highlands region has been expanding over the years in response to state involvement and Congressional directives. Most recently, the Connecticut and Pennsylvania Highlands were added to the New York and New Jersey Highlands, with the passage of the Federal Highlands Conservation Act of 2004 (P.L. 108-42, United States Statutes at Large). The resulting Highlands boundary now encompasses 3.4 million acres, 25 counties, and 319 municipalities.

This New York-New Jersey Highlands Regional Study Technical Report, accompanies the New York-New Jersey Highlands Regional Study: 2002 Update. The technical Report provides greater detail on the data sources, methodology, and results concerning the assessment and analysis conducted as part of the Study Update.

For more information on the technical report, a contact person will be determined.
