Manasquan Watershed Source Water Protection Program

Manasquan Reservoir Photo

The Manasquan River serves as a significant water supply for portions of eastern Monmouth County. The Manasquan Reservoir has a very small watershed and therefore is almost entirely dependent upon pumpage from the Manasquan River to support its 30 MGD safe yield. The Manasquan River Watershed Management Plan focuses on several key issues: fishery management, habitat protection, drinking water quality and quantity, and cultural heritage. Some of these strategies and action plans directly relate to the movement of pollutants into and down the Manasquan River to the New Jersey Water Supply Authority (NJWSA) water supply intake. Continuing assessmentsin the Watershed will target potential sources of contamination to guide restoration efforts.
