  • NJWSA received the Leadership Award in the 5th Annual Sustainable Raritan River Conference held on June 11, 2013

The Division has developed and is implementing an innovative Raritan Watershed Management Plan, and offers cost-share funding to farmers in four target watersheds for the installation of agricultural practices that improve soil and water resources and help protect and enhance water quality. The four watersheds -- Mulhockaway Creek, Spruce Run, Neshanic River, and South Branch of the Raritan -- provide drinking water to more than 1.5 million customers in central New Jersey.
