Press release from Brookdale Community College
According to a December 2015 report by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), only 55 percent of New Jersey’s waters fully support one of the department’s five designated uses of water resources: water supply, recreation, aquatic life, shellfish harvest and fish consumption. The other forty-five percent support none.
What does this mean to our daily life here in the Garden State? How do watersheds function? What do we need to do to protect our supply of drinking water? And could what happened in Flint, Michigan also occur here?
On the evening of Wednesday, April 13, Brookdale Community College invites all members of the community to hear answers to these and other questions, during a free panel discussion on local drinking water, water quality and the potential risks to statewide water supplies.
