The spring Sustainability Seminar Series continues on April 3 with the talk "Challenges for Sustainable Clean Water Supply" by Jennifer Coffey of the Association for New Jersey Environmental Commissions.
This talk will provide an overview of the current and next generation challenges related to ensuring clean drinking water, healthy oceans and escalating impacts of flooding. Local governments have ultimate authority over land use decisions and the ability to ensure there is enough clean water to meet all of our future needs in the Garden State. The most important steps for local governments to enact will be discussed.
Jennifer M. Coffey, executive director, joined the Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions (ANJEC) in July 2014. For 10 years prior, she served as the policy director for central New Jersey’s first watershed association, the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association. She chaired the Upper Freehold Environmental Commission for seven years and also served as a member of the Planning Board. She is a member of the New Jersey State Water Supply Advisory Council and the New Jersey Society of Women Environmental Professionals. She holds a bachelor’s degree in communications from Stockton University and dual master’s degrees in environmental policy and environmental science from the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
