Craig Fleming

Water Quality Field Specialist

Craig’s journey to becoming the new Water Quality Field Specialist started when he attended his first River Watcher training for the fall macroinvertebrate sampling event in 2021. Shortly after, he had the opportunity to intern over the winter season and then again during the subsequent summer season. During this time, he gained a wealth of knowledge of his local watershed while also a desire to do more for it. So when the opportunity to become the new Water Quality Field Specialist emerged, he knew this was his opportunity to do just that!

As the Water Quality Field Specialist, Craig works closely with others on his team to monitor the various components of water quality within the Musconetcong River as well as managing the dynamic group of volunteers known as the River Watchers with tasks ranging from macroinvertebrate collections and IDs to road salt monitoring programs.

Craig was born and raised in Oxford, NJ and is a graduate of Centenary University, where he gained his Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science with a minor in Chemistry. While at Centenary Craig became aware of the River Watcher program, and that sparked his career at the MWA. When he isn’t playing in the river for work, Craig can be found working out, hiking or kayaking.
