Many of New Jersey's most pristine waterways face the risk of contamination from rapidly expanding development. These waterways provide clean drinking water for millions of New Jersey citizens, replenish the state's groundwater supplies, provide ecologically critical habitat for threatened and endangered species, and regionally important recreational opportunities. This report explores the link between development and water quality degradation in the state and highlights a set of valuable but vulnerable rivers that need protection.
