Watershed Management Area 7 – The Arthur Kill Watershed

AmeriCorps NJ Watershed Ambassadors Program  – The AmeriCorps NJ Watershed Ambassadors Program is administered by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Water Monitoring and Standards. The goals of the program are to promote watershed stewardship through education and direct community involvement, and to monitor stream health through performing visual and biological assessments. Individual AmeriCorps members are assigned to each of New Jersey’s 20 watershed management areas (WMAs) to serve as “Watershed Ambassadors” to their watershed communities.

WMA 7 is comprised of parts of Union, Essex and Middlesex Counties (see map) and the Watershed Ambassador is hosted out of Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Union County
