Mission Statement

Our mission is to preserve the historic structures and natural resources of Jersey City Reservoir #3, establish the site as a public park and wildlife sanctuary, and promote educational and recreational opportunities at the Reservoir.

Description

The Jersey City Reservoir Preservation Alliance (JCRPA) incorporated in 2005 by a few concerned citizens. We have since been working to save the Reservoir’s lake, meadow, and woods from destruction and misuse. The JCRPA is an entirely volunteer-run organization with a working board: we have no paid employees.

The Alliance watches over the Reservoir - conducting tours, running school programs, boating and nature events, caretaking wildlife and cleaning up the site, and working with government. ​For its work to document and preserve its historic structures the Alliance received the Ted Conrad "Preservationist of the Year" Award, May 2005.​ After the Reservoir Park is established, we aim to act as a conservancy to monitor, protect, and enhance the site.
