New Jersey’s water must be protected for everyone, by everyone
The recommendations made by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection’s (NJDEP) Drinking Water Quality Institute (DWQI) are of critical importance and affect us all. Such a body should base its work on sound science, have representation from all stakeholders, and be comprised of individuals with academic and professional experience that allow them to fully consider and understand all available science. That is why I believe that openness, sound science, and transparency should be the underpinnings of DWQI’s process or of any regulatory process.
