New Jersey Water-Resources Projects

The USGS New Jersey Water Science Center conducts projects that involve the collection, monitoring, management, and analysis of data on hydrologic and biological resource conditions. These projects address a wide variety of water-resources issues, including water supply, ground-water contamination, nutrient loading in streams, ecological influences, effects of land use on water quality, and basic hydrologic and biological data collection. The purpose of this project work is to provide reliable, impartial, and timely information needed to understand the Nation's water resources and enable decision makers to wisely manage the Nation's water resources. Project work is accomplished with funding by State, county, municipal, and Federal cooperators with water-resources responsibilities. Some projects provide online sites through which the public can see much of the ongoing work. Results and data from other projects are not available until they are published.
