The Bureau of Freshwater and Biological Monitoring is responsible for several multi-year monitoring programs, some of which have served as prototypes for the nation. The bureau's programs are:
- Special Water Quality Monitoring projects with emphasis on watershed monitoring. These special monitoring initiatives are efficiently combining biological and chemical/physical monitoring as part of emerging state and federal strategies to more realistically assess the success of State and Federal Clean Water Act Programs. The sampling stations include surfacewater as well as groundwater monitoring.
- Didymo occurrence and prevention in NJ streams.(Webinar)
The Bureau of Marine Water Monitoring provides monitoring support for estuarine coastal and marine waters.
