Details of the proposed deal the attorney general struck last month with the Texas-based oil company were published Monday morning on the Department of Environmental Protection's website.
The publication starts the clock on a legal process that will stretch into June. The department extended the comment window from the typical 30 days to 60 days.
The settlement needs to be approved by a judge.
News of the settlement came in early March when acting Attorney General John Hoffman announced the deal with Exxon, the culmination of an 11-year-old lawsuit that charged the company polluted the land and water around oil refineries in Linden and Bayonne in northern New Jersey.
