Monitoring Our Water

The Watershed monitors local streams for pollution through StreamWatch, one of the core activities in our science and stewardship program.

Understanding the health and quality of our waters helps us recommend environmental policies and protections, educate the public about how to protect and restore clean water and the environment, and work to restore ailing habitats. Water monitoring and research is the foundation of The Watershed Institute’s efforts to protect streams and rivers in central New Jersey.
