Mission Statement

New Jersey has many spectacular rivers and coastlines, from the Delaware River to the southern Jersey shore. Unfortunately, nearly eighty percent of our rivers, lakes, and streams are too polluted for fishing or swimming. New Jersey Community Water Watch is a joint program between AmeriCorps and the NJPIRG Law and Policy Center. Water Watch works to empower students and community members to address water quality problems in New Jersey's urban areas through education and service.

Description

Today, in New Jersey, more than 75% of our lakes and streams are degraded so significantly that they are considered too polluted for fishing or swimming. NJ Community Water Watch is a statewide environmental program working to solve urban water pollution problems by organizing hands-on service projects and increasing stewardship in the surrounding communities.
