Spring Beauties, Josie Faass
Welcome to the Sustainable Raritan River Initiative.
The members of the Raritan River Collaborative are working together to achieve the highest quality for the waters and riparian areas of the Raritan River basin. Their accomplishments from 2011 are highlighted in the recent report, Sustainable Raritan River Collaborative Action Report
Each organization contributes to the overall restoration and preservation of the River, and collectively we are changing the conversation about the future of the river.
The Collaborative set goals for a regional approach, embraced by state and federal organizations and implemented at the local and county level:
Should there be more water quality testing throughout the system? Greater public access? Should we have a greenway to the Bay?
Can we ‘clean it up and green it up’ – through remediation and sustainable redevelopment practices?
Can we enjoy our heritage river resource and have economic growth?
Join efforts to work together to bring the financial resources to the region – and have the conversations necessary to coordinate efforts so we are all ‘rowing’ in the same direction!
This website provides a central link among the many groups and government efforts supporting the restoration and preservation of the Raritan River and a clearinghouse for historic and current information on the River and its restoration.
