The New Jersey Lake Watch is designed to provide students, teachers, families, watershed associations, environmental commissions, lake communities, and citizen volunteers with a fun and easy way to provide information on overall lake conditions. The public is encouraged to participate in this easy, family friendly, 30 minute lake assessment. New Jersey Lake Watch surveys can be conducted multiple times, by multiple participants throughout the growing season between May and September.
The data collected will allow us to determine lake use and accessibility across the state, determine nutrient problems at specific lakes, and identify aquatic invasive species.
Communities are often not aware of the natural resources that are available for their enjoyment right in their own towns and back yards. Through the New Jersey Lake Watch, communities will be able to make these types of connections to the natural world while promoting the importance of volunteer monitoring and local stewardship of our water resources.
