Water Quality Data Dashboard
MWA and it's DRWI partners, collect data from rivers in Northwestern New Jersey to ensure the river remains suitable for recreation and to supply those living in the Delaware River watershed with safe drinking water. Learn more about the water quality in your community.
What data do we collect and why?
Chemical, biological, and habitat data tells us how stream restoration projects, like dam removals, improve river habitat. Some of the available data includes: phosphorus, nitrogen, temperature, bacteria, macroinvertebrates, dissolved oxygen, suspended sediment and more. Data availability will change site to site, depending on the focus on the monitoring or the funds available.
The Delaware River Watershed Initiative
The Delaware River Watershed Initiative (DRWI) is a collaborative of nearly 50 organizations working together to protect the rivers and streams that provide drinking water to more than 15 million people across 4 states.
The MWA works in the New Jersey Highlands Cluster and supports water quality monitoring work in several streams in Northwestern New Jersey, including the Musconetcong River. This data shows all of the water quality monitoring work in the New Jersey Highlands Cluster.
