The Sustainable Raritan River Initiative helped launch the Rutgers Raritan River Project in January 2013 with a workshop in The Forum at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy in New Brunswick.
This project is nearing completion (September 2015). When done, the Rutgers Raritan data project will provide a comprehensive understanding of sources of pollution affecting the water quality of the Lower Raritan River (WMA 09). The data will assist stakeholders in the general public as they make decisions related to environmental clean-up, site reuse, identification of water pollution sources, identifying data gaps and providing recommendations for future research. This project is made possible through the a grant from the U.S. EPA.
