RARITAN HEADWATERS

Protecting clean water in our rivers, our streams and our homes is the mission of Raritan Headwaters. Since 1959, RHA has served as the watchdog for the 470-square-mile North and South Branch Raritan watershed, a region covering 38 municipalities including Somerset County. Safeguarding these “headwaters” means clean, safe water for 300,000 watershed residents and 1.5 million New Jerseyans living downstream in more urban areas that depend on the water that comes from our rivers and reservoirs.
