Greening New Jersey’s Water Infrastructure

December 13, 2013
9:00 amto1:00 pm

Clean water—drinkable, swimmable and fishable—has been the goal of planning and regulatory efforts for over fifty years. While managing water resources to achieve this goal continues to be the primary focus for New Jersey’s leaders, evidence indicates a lack of familiarity with successful green technologies and the dearth of available funding may be hindering efforts.  NJ Clean Water Council seeks public testimony on successful and unsuccessful public and private efforts to design, permit, finance, construct and maintain cutting edge green technology and green infrastructure projects.

Where:
NJ Department of Environmental Protection – Public Hearing Room, 1st Floor, 401 East State Street in Trenton.
