  • StormwaterPA - Protecting Water Quality, Preserving Quality of Life in the NJ Highlands
    the main reasons the area attracts more visitors every year than Yosemite Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon combined Highlands creeks and streams are key tributaries of the Delaware River so their water quality not only has a local impact but also affects millions of people outside of the region extending hundreds of miles downstream to the Delaware Bay While Highland waterways are relatively healthy suburban development and agriculture are constant threats Polluted runoff from farmland impervious surfaces like roads parking lots rooftops and residential lawns leaky septic systems and illicit sewer connections impair water quality and affect aquatic life in the streams The loss and fragmentation of forests compound these problems fewer trees mean less habitat more sedimentation and lost opportunities for natural root systems to filter pollutants absorb runoff and help minimize floods This video highlights the unique natural beauty of this treasured part of New Jersey some of the stresses it faces and the important work being undertaken by a group of organizations united in a common cause protecting water quality and preserving quality of life To learn how you can do your part to support this important effort get involved by contacting one of the organizations working in the region today Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions Hunterdon Land Trust The Land Conservancy of New Jersey Musconetcong Watershed Association The Nature Conservancy New Jersey Chapter New Jersey Audubon Society New Jersey Conservation Foundation New Jersey Highlands Coalition North Jersey RC D Sussex County Municipal Utilities Authority Wallkill River Watershed Management Group New Jersey Trout Unlimited Support for this production was provided by the William Penn Foundation under the Delaware River Watershed Initiative Learn more at drwi net njhighlands Like What you See Want to spread these ideas Share a Mobile Friendly Snippet Check out this mobile ready
