Lockatong and Wickecheoke Creek Watersheds:
A major project underway is theLockatong and Wickecheoke Creek Watersheds Restoration and Management Plan (these two watersheds make up the majority of Kingwood Township). The following links describe some “conceptual” designs for proposed stormwater controls for 4 municipalities as proposed in the Lockatong and Wickecheoke Creek Watersheds Management Plan.  The projects are funded by a federal 319(h) grant administered by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection.  Some of the designs have been submitted by college students at Delaware Valley College (Doylestown, PA).  The designs are undergoing final review by the municipalities and the Lockatong and Wickecheoek Creek Watersheds Technical Committee.  Where warranted, the designs may be somewhat reconfigured. ]Ideas 1 (1.3 mb pdf);Ideas 2 (8 mb pdf);Ideas 3 (0.9 mb pdf);Roadside Drainage Ideas (1.5 mb pdf)

Environmentally Safe Disposal of Prescription Drugs:  Over the counter and prescription medications should not be disposed down the drain because septic systems are not designed to remove pharmaceutical compounds and they may end up in your local waterways, and may eventually be found in your drinking water. Properly disposing of unwanted and expired prescriptions and over-the-counter medications in the trash promotes a healthy aquatic environment and prevents accidental poisoning and intentional abuse.What should you do?
