Jersey Water Works is a collaborative effort of many diverse organizations and individuals who embrace the common purpose of transforming New Jersey’s water infrastructure. Each member, individual and organization bring their own unique perspective and expertise to the complex problem of upgrading New Jersey’s water infrastructure. The collaborative as a whole is made up of supporting members, four committees and steering committee, along with affinity groups and task forces.
