Protect New Jersey's Water Supply

Jersey City is no stranger to the fight to create and protect valuable open spaces throughout our city. Whether is it creating parkland on a former brownfield site, to keeping development out of Liberty State Park, preserving our natural resources is a goal that should be shared by lawmakers and legislators throughout New Jersey. 

Once again, a proposal has come forward which threatens one of our state's most important natural resources, and is one that will impact Jersey City residents, and residents throughout the state, in important ways. Many Jersey City residents may be unaware that the water they drink everyday, from the sinks in their homes to the water fountains in our schools, is provided to us clean and bacteria-free from the New Jersey Highlands region. A proposed regulation change by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection will significantly alter this resource-rich region, which provides nearly 70% of our state, including much of Jersey City, with clean, low-cost drinking water.
