Water Quality Monitoring in the Rahway River Watershed

As part of a new initiative by the Rahway River Watershed Association, and funded by a grant from The Watershed Institute, we are excited to be starting a Water Quality Monitoring Program in the Rahway River Watershed!

After two visual assessment training sessions on April 28th and May 5th, given by Rahway River Watershed Ambassador Chelsea Moxley, we have about 20 trained water monitors who are adopting locations throughout the watershed. The monitoring will be done twice a year.

Later this year, the results of our spring and fall assessments will be published in the 2018 Rahway River Water Quality Report Card. We look forward to sharing these results with you.
