The NJWSA, with a 319 Nonpoint Source Pollution Control Grant from NJDEP, developed the Mulhockaway Creek Stormwater Management and Watershed Restoration Plan. The plan was developed because water quality standards for pathogens (fecal coliform) and temperature were exceeded, aquatic life was rated as moderately impaired and the Mulhockaway Creek is tributary to Spruce Run Reservoir, a major water supply reservoir and recreation area. An extensive characterization and assessment was developed based on historic water quality data, a bacterial source tracking program, a stormwater infrastructure inventory, municipal assessments and stream visual assessments. Five watershed wide and fourteen site specific projects were identified to mitigate the problems identified during the project. In addition, recommendations were developed for implementation of the pathogen (fecal coliform) Total Maximum Daily Load.
