The Metedeconk River Watershed Protection and Restoration Plan
Welcome to the Watershed
The Metedeconk River serves as an important regional source of drinking water supply and provides a significant amount of freshwater discharge to the Barnegat Bay estuary. It is the primary water supply source of the Brick Township Municipal Utilities Authority (BTMUA), which serves more than 100,000 residents within Brick Township, Lakewood Township, Howell Township, Point Pleasant Borough, and Point Pleasant Beach Borough.

Greening Your Landscape While Protecting the Watershed
The Brick Township Municipal Utilities Authority (Brick Utilities) recently completed a series of workshops promoting simple measures people can take to help protect the Barnegat Bay Estuary and Metedeconk River Watershed. Greening Your Landscape While Protecting the Watershed discussed how rain barrels and rain gardens reduce nonpoint source pollution from stormwater runoff to these waterbodies. The free workshops were offered from August 2017 through October 2018 to residents throughout the Barnegat Bay watershed with a grant from the Barnegat Bay Partnership.
