World Water Monitoring Day 2009
Activities in New Jersey

October 7, 2009

From September 18 to October 18, 2009, 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, teachers and students from St. Joseph's Pro Cathedral in Camden, with an interest in science and ecology are invited on October 7th to learn from and interact with staff from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the Delaware River Basin Commission (DBRC), AmeriCorps, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA Region 2). These agencies will demonstrate water quality monitoring activities using chemical, biological, and flow techniques at the Palmyra Cove Nature Center in Palmyra, NJ. (
