The New Jersey Water Infrastructure Spending Dashboard  is an interactive data visualization tool that shows the amount of funding awarded for clean and drinking water projects for Fiscal Year 2023. Aggregate amounts and per-project award information are presented, showing how much funding has been awarded community by community.

“New Jersey’s water infrastructure needs are great,” Commissioner of Environmental Protection Shawn M. LaTourette said. “The Murphy administration is committed to investing in projects that will create jobs while helping to protect the public from health threats such as lead and PFAS in drinking water, flooding caused by outdated stormwater infrastructure, and degraded rivers and streams caused by combined sewer overflows.

“This dashboard is an important part of the DEP’s efforts to raise public awareness about the state’s water infrastructure funding needs,” he added. “In a glance, the tool provides users with an easy way to follow the progress of funding for projects that will maintain, upgrade and modernize infrastructure that is critical for protection of public health and a cleaner environment.”
