On Friday, October 24, the NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), the US Geological Survey (USGS) and the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) co-hosted the 2nd annual celebration of Water Monitoring Day in New Jersey. This year's event took place at Washington Crossing State Park, along the banks of the Delaware River, and featured demonstrations of the various types of fresh, ground and marine water monitoring activities that are performed by each agency. 5th and 6th grade students from the Lambertville and West Amwell Elementary Schools as well as a 9th grade Biology class from the S. Hunterdon Regional High School participated in the event. Click here to see a slide show of the day's activities. As part of the NJ celebration, several water monitoring-related announcements were made. The event site was registered on the World Water Monitoring Day (WWMD) website, water samples were taken from the Delaware River and analyzed using the special WWMD kits, and teachers were provided with the sampling results to enter in to the WWMD database on the website.
