New Jersey Water Savers Partnership
New Jersey Water Savers is a partnership between the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, and the United States Environmental Protection Agency. This partnership was created to provide leadership to promote water conservation throughout New Jersey.
This partnership has resulted in conservation projects conducted in five pilot communities. The results of the projects have provided an excellent foundation for educational and outreach programs that can be delivered across New Jersey. The partners have developed and implemented programs that have been designed to encourage local stakeholders to change their behavior, ultimately saving water. These programs have the potential to save taxpayers capital expenditures over the long term by delaying or even eliminating the need to develop new or expanded water supply systems and wastewater treatment plants.
