North Jersey RC&D is currently working on securing funding for a project that will help improve water quality in the Lopatcong Creek while simultaneously protecting further deterioration of the Morris Canal. To read more about this project in the local news follow this link.
Agricultural producers and land owners who have an interest in an agricultural operation predominantly located within one of three designated sub-watersheds of the Raritan River basin can apply for technical and financial assistance to implement farm practices that improve water quality. Application must be received by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) by April 19, 2013, to be eligible for current funding.
To find out if you are within one of the three sub-watersheds you can click here.
