If you haven’t already, carve out about 20 minutes to complete our Network’s survey and inventory of NJ community-based water monitoring groups. Questions include information about the type of work you are doing and what resources you would like to be made available to you by the Network and NJDEP. (Thanks to the 24 groups that have already participated!)

Your program’s fixed monitoring sites are an important part of the New Jersey water quality puzzle. Click below to download an Excel template to record your site information and email it to Network Coordinator, Erin Stretz, at estretz@thewatershed.org. Have your own spreadsheet? Send that instead!
