The protection of our natural resources is becoming more important as the natural lands around us continue to be developed and maintained for residential, commercial, and industrial uses. One of the natural resources that is most adversely affected by this continued development is the quality of surface waters throughout the State, i.e. our streams, rivers, ponds, and lakes.
 
As a consequence, the Borough has enacted various State mandated measures to aid in controlling storm water pollution and to preserve the quality of the surface waters in our own municipality. However, the Borough cannot achieve all of these goals alone and we need your help!  

Therefore, we invite you to visit www.cleanwaternj.org to find out about the many ways in which you can participate in the preservation of our streams, lakes, and ponds for future generations. In addition, you will find information below about the effects of storm water pollution and the various measures that each resident can undertake to aid in our cause.
