Outreach and Education Program

The Brick Township Municipal Utilities Authority (Brick Utilities) offers water-related educational programs to schools, municipalities and community organizations within the Metedeconk River Watershed and its water supply region. The programs are provided free of charge and are geared towards a variety of age groups and interests. Presentations are often customized to meet the particular needs of the organization or audience and are sometimes in collaboration with other environmental education programs in the area. Topics include:

• Watersheds and Nonpoint Source Pollution with EnviroScape® Model Demonstration
• Where Does My Water Come From?
• “How Much Water Is Used?” Flashcard Game
• Water Conservation Tips for Homeowners
• Build Your Own Rain Barrel Workshops
• Native Landscaping
• Water Conservation in the Garden
• Metedeconk Watershed Mascot & Slogan School Contests
• Stream Cleanups
• Exhibits on Stormwater Pollution Prevention at Municipal Events and Green Fairs

Municipalities may use these programs to obtain credits towards public education for NJPDES municipal stormwater (MS4) general permits and if they are looking for credits from Sustainable Jersey.

Brick Utilities is offering its education and outreach program as part of its commitment to protecting the Metedeconk River, our primary source of water supply, as well as the Barnegat Bay. The program is an important part of the Metedeconk River Watershed Protection and Restoration Plan.
