Passaic River Coalition (PRC) is the watershed organization for the Passaic River Basin of northern New Jersey and southern New York, a 935-square mile region of urban, suburban, rural, and wilderness areas in which more than 2 million people live.
The Passaic River Coalition (PRC), since it was founded in 1969, has faced the challenges of a watershed threatened by every conceivable environmental problem and facing serious issues of water supply, water quality, urban planning for environmental needs and open space preservation. Our goal is focused on seeking positive results and improvements in land/water resource management and on the public health issues concerning community organizations, governments, and businesses. We have led important initiatives to protect drinking water, preserve sensitive wildlife habitat, improve water quality, create new open space, and promote natural flood control management.
As a leader in New Jersey's environmental community, we are recognized statewide and nationwide for our ability to understand complex water resource issues and provide guidance in policy-making decisions. Therefore, we are frequently asked to serve on federal and state committees that are discussing and defining important and technical environmental issues.
We achieve our objectives through a highly successful process of education, research and public service. PRC relies on a Board of Trustees, a dedicated staff, and many volunteers. We work closely with our decision-making audiences establishing strong partnerships among industry, government, non-profit organizations and citizens, as well as maintaining an adequate financial support to achieve our mission:
"IMPROVING WATER QUALITY ISN'T JUST OUR GOAL - IT'S YOUR FUTURE!"
