Potential Environmental Justice Areas This file shows polygon locations of Potential Environmental Justice Areas which can be defined in the yes/no field called PEJA. A public service is listed below. Potential Environmental Justice Areas have been identified based on data from the 2014-2018 American Community Survey. Environmental justice efforts focus on improving the environment in communities, specifically minority and low-income communities, and addressing disproportionate adverse environmental impacts that may exist in those communities. The information balloon for each census block group area displays the census block group ID, total population, percent minority, percent below poverty level, and a link to more information on the Department of Environmental Conservation's website  Land Use/Land Cover
