New Jersey needs to take action to protect our water supplies from drought and contamination.
Join with us and tell the Governor’s Office to release the Water Supply Master Plan to keep our drinking water safe.
Good planning and good policy are key to protecting our clean water . . .
New Jersey’s water infrastructure, planning and policy need an upgrade. Our drinking water is a finite resource that needs protection from drought and contamination. The recent water crisis in California may seem far away from New Jersey, but certain regions in the Garden State are already facing water challenges of their own due to the lack of a comprehensive plan to protect our water supplies.
Good planning and good policy are key to protecting our drinking water supplies, but New Jersey has fallen behind. The state must ensure that there’s enough clean water to meet all of our future needs by releasing the statewide Water Supply Master Plan, strengthening regulations, and enforcing its rules.
Unfortunately for New Jersey residents, the Water Supply Master Plan hasn’t been revised since 1996 – nearly two decades ago. From water shortages to saltwater intrusion, these challenges are already at our doorstep. That’s why it’s time for Governor Christie to release the Water Supply Master Plan.
