Jersey Water Works will launch its public-facing data dashboard in fall 2020.  The Jersey Water Works (JWW) Data Dashboard will provide a robust, accessible system of data metrics that showcase system condition and progress toward improvements. In order to ensure proactive upgrades, consumers, utilities, and regulators need easy access to data showing the condition of water systems and whether they are improving or getting worse. By supporting continuous learning and action by JWW stakeholders, the dashboard will accelerate the improvement of water infrastructure in the collaborative’s four goal areas, as detailed in the infographic below.

The Jersey Water Works goals and subgoals focus the collaborative’s activities. In 2016, the collaborative proposed an aspirational measurement system to track its progress toward accomplishing those goals. The graphic at the bottom of this page provides a detailed breakdown of this aspirational measurement system. It outlines indicators that help track progress, providing feedback to Jersey Water Works members and committees about whether their strategies are succeeding and where they need refinement. 

The Jersey Water Works Data Dashboard will build on this. It will also:

  • Serve as a repository for data related to Jersey Water Works goals and progress
  • Inform JWW in making data-driven decisions in its work of improving the water infrastructure of New Jersey
  • Educate New Jersey’s consumers about their water infrastructure
  • Promote transparency and data-driven peer knowledge exchange among drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater utilities 
  • Serve as a resource for the water sector

The JWW data advisory committee provides subject area expertise and perspective on water sector metrics. Members include:
