New Jersey Institute of Technology along with partner organizations (North Jersey Resource Conservation and Development, New Jersey Water Supply Authority, Hunterdon County SCD, South Branch Watershed Association and Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program) completed The Neshanic River Watershed Restoration Plan approved in March 2012.
This project will contain three main goals. (1) Increase quantity of agricultural best management practices implemented, to reduce water quality impairments in entire Neshanic River Watershed and headwaters, coupling practices with USDA- Farm Bill funding support (2) Increase implementation of small-scale bio-retention BMPs to reduce storm water contribution. (3 ) Incorporate sustainable stormwater and landscape design on Hunterdon Land Trust- Dvoor Farm property to incorporate erosion and sediment control measures in the area adjacent to the Mine Street crossing of Walnut Brook and potentially address flooding issues.
