The NJ DEP has granted $300,000 to GSWA to implement agricultural pollution control projects to reduce pathogens and nutrient loadings in the Loantaka Watershed.
"Funded through federal Clean Water Act grants, the projects are designed to reduce the nonpoint source pollution to restore and protect water quality in priority watersheds. Nonpoint source pollution results from animal waste, fertilizers, motor vehicle fluids, litter and other pollutants that are washed into local waterways by stormwater runoff." (Daily Record)
We are very eager to begin work on this project and hope you will continue to follow our blog for project updates!
