The WRWMG's Water Quality Sampling Program

Through its sampling initiatives, the WRWMG has provided the State of New Jersey with a cost effective, certified sampling program designed to obtain scientific data that will allow more informed decisions to be made regarding environmental practices, watershed management, and land use planning strategies.

The WRWMG has conducted more than eight years worth of NJDEP QA/QC approved chemical and biological surface water quality monitoring, collecting more than 5,000 stream samples throughout Sussex County. In addition, the WRWMG has been extremely active in collecting and submitting water quality data to the NJDEP for use in establishing various Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) and developing restoration plans to meet the established TMDLs.
