Musconetcong Watershed Association Wins Governor’s Award


A good friend and partner to American Rivers, the Musconetcong Watershed Association, was awarded a 2008 Governor’s Environmental Excellence Award.

The group was nominated by Nancy Lawler of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. Ms. Lawler sums up the work MWA does best by saying, “The Musconetcong Watershed Association has been at the forefront of preserving…clean water for future generations by working to protect the Musconetcong River through Wild and Scenic designation, restoring the river to free-flowing conditions through its dam removal projects, and reminding the thousands of residents of 25 municipalities in this region of the primary importance of the river through its diverse education programs.”

American Rivers has been proud to partner with MWA on the removal of several dams on the Musconetcong River and in working to achieve Wild and Scenic status. Congratulations on a well deserved achievement!
