  • NJ Water on Earth Day - The Watershed Institute
    it has been well recognized that water resources are a critical component of the natural environment and of our everyday lives Today a letter drafted by the Watershed Institute on behalf of thirteen watershed and environmental organizations was submitted at a Senate Legislative Oversight Committee hearing That hearing addressed the State s lack of an updated Water Supply Master Plan Through the letter the signatories urged the committee to press for the public release of a new and up to date plan The most recent Plan was released in 1996 and it is required by law that the Plan be updated every five years An updated draft exists but has been withheld from the public for unknown reasons The release of the latest draft is necessary to inform public policy especially with regard to growth and development We know that a thorough understanding of our available water resources is the strongest tool we have for protecting and sustaining them A Statewide Water Master Plan is the first step in ensuring that our resources are managed efficiently for the public the environment and the future Many thanks to the follow groups who signed on to the letter To read the text
