Your voice for the environment.
For more than six decades, the Watershed Association has led the fight to preserve our region’s water and land. We engage local and state officials, urging them to strengthen environmental protections, improve planning and zoning, and make better informed decisions about our future. We work cooperatively with local towns through our Project for Municipal Excellence, and speak out against development proposals that would harm the local environment and our quality of life.
The Watershed Association has a long track record of successful environmental advocacy. We have halted sewage discharges into the Delaware & Raritan Canal, stopped Interstate 95 from cutting through the Hopewell Valley, helped lead the way for enactment of the NJ Freshwater Wetlands Protection Act, helped secure new regulations governing management of stormwater and wastewater, and mobilized voter support for numerous open space ballot measures.
We also help strengthen watershed associations throughout New Jersey through The Watershed Institute and rally community action with our annual Stream Clean-ups.The Watershed Association is your advocate for clean water and the environment, but we can’t do it alone. We need your help to protect our watershed. Become a part of our advocacy team and help us by getting involved in your community – speaking out at town meetings, contacting our government leaders, cleaning a stream and more!
