Every town in New Jersey can take action to protect its water supplies and safeguard its residents from pollution, flooding, drought and other environmental harm. The Watershed works directly with municipal governments to enact measures that manage stormwater, protect stream corridors, limit clearing of forests, preserve open space, and respond to climate change.
