World Water Monitoring Day 2008
Activities in New Jersey

October 16, 2008

From September 18 to October 18, 2008, people around the globe will join together to monitor the quality of their local watersheds and enter the results of their efforts into an international database. A major goal of this effort, which kicks off with "World Water Monitoring Day," is to create an awareness of how important it is to protect our waterways, a resource on which our lives depend.

As part of this month-long projects, local high school teachers and students with an interest in science and ecology are invited on October 16th to learn from and interact with staff from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), the United States Geological Survey (USGS), and the Delaware River Basin Commission (DBRC). These agencies will demonstrate water quality monitoring activities using chemical, biological, and flow techniques at Prallsville Mills, in Stockton, NJ.
