The Sustainable Raritan River Initiative, a joint program of Rutgers’ Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and the School of Environmental and Biological Science, works with various stakeholders around the Raritan Basin and Bay to balance social, economic and environmental objectives towards the common goal of restoring the Raritan River, its tributaries and its estuary for current and future generations. The Initiative in turn partners with the Sustainable Raritan River Collaborative, which is a network of over 130 organizations, governmental entities and businesses in the Raritan region. We work together to restore and protect this valuable regional resource.
This website provides visitors with information about the Raritan Basin and Bay, Rutgers University initiatives focused on the Raritan – including the new Rutgers Raritan River Consortium, efforts of the Collaborative, and news and events that relate to the Raritan region. Go to Key Focus Areas to learn about the five key areas of our Action Plan for a more sustainable Raritan.
