The New Jersey Center for Water Science and Technology (NJCWST) is dedicated to the study of water quality, pollution and technological solutions. Our dedicated team researches, monitors, and aids in the management of lakes, rivers, reservoirs, and other waterbodies throughout the state of New Jersey. We provide technical assistance to conservation groups, water managers, and municipalities in a continuous effort to keep our water safe for drinking and recreation, to ensure that our seafood is safe for human consumption, and to preserve native ecosystems and precious water resources. The NJCWST also enriches public outreach through environmental education sponsorships for K-12 students, as well as the general public.
