This joint effort between the municipalities, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), Middlesex County, and the YMCAs of Metuchen, Edison, Woodbridge, and South Amboy provides an opportunity for the area to become more resilient and improve the quality of life for its more than 300,000 residents.
