New Jersey has an enviable system of water supply, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure. However, the State has historically under-invested in maintaining these systems and has not upgraded many antiquated components to modern standards. Associate Research Professor for Water, Society & the Environment Daniel Van Abs (CC’77) and his research team have completed recent reports on these issues for Together North Jersey (a regional cooperative planning project managed by Rutgers) and New Jersey Future (a statewide non-profit dedicated to improved local, regional and statewide planning). Van Abs presented an overview of the issues, the existing management systems and recommendations for better future results in a lecture on Cook Campus on October 8. Read more in The Daily Targum.
