August is Water Quality Month

Monday, August 16, 2021


Did you know that only 1% of freshwater on earth is accessible – and 13 million people rely on the Delaware River for clean drinking water - even people right here in New Jersey? #WaterQualityMonth is the perfect time to find out where your water comes from and how to protect it.

Here are 5 things your community can do during #WaterQualityMonth:

1. Organize stream cleanups

2. Plant trees to prevent erosion

3. Monitor water quality

4. Don’t use fertilizer made with phosphorus.

5. Use a rain barrel to collect rainwater
