Yeah
I just saw that. I wish I saw this section (Introductions) before I
made that first post. Ah well. Nice site. Thanks for the knowledge.

Hello there, welcome. I'm in Middlesex county (the Brunswicks area). Think there are a lot of NJ folks here.

There must be something in the water there to drive all these people mad! Well, one would assume we're all mad on this board.

rjdey,
there is certainly ""something"" in the water in NJ, no question. In
fact, I would say there are many ""somethings"" in the water that are
driving us mad here! :D Yet I'm told our state still rates as one of
the highest in terms of drinking water quality. "

Hmmm...

Having seen the Hudson River, I'm not sure whether I would want to take a drink from that... :blink:

Like
what? What would you like me to post? Like the fact that I have a
drawer full of ESRI tee shirts, 4 ESRI mousepads, countless pins and
other ESRI accessories? (Actually, Mike, I don't have an ESRI coffee
mug yet, so if you'd like to send me one, that'd be nice!) :) "

Thats crazy! :lol:

I grew up in Marlton NJ, but now live in North California. Go Cherokee Chiefs!

One
point about NJ water is that most of the domestic water comes from
groundwater aquifers, not rivers. The largest, and still unspoiled,
aquifer is the Cohansey aquifer underlying the NJ Pine Barrens (or
Pinelands). The Cogansey aquifer contains an estimated 17 trillion
gallons of freshwater!! And it tastes good too.

Yeehaw
pine barrens! I went to high school at Southern Regional (Manahawkin),
right on top of the pine barrens... one cool fact about the pine
barrens most people don't know is that there is one flower species
which is unique throughout the world, which only flowers there once a
year. From what I remember, it's a pretty stinky-smelling flower too.

Oh, and I believe it is a unique ecosystem as well.

Hm...
my point in responding though, was to say... does that aquifer have
anything to do with the fact that 1/2 of Jersey (the south I think,
thus the pine barrens) was previously underwater... at some point in
history... can't remember how far back. "

I
think you are refering to the Pinelands Gentian (pink, flowers late
summer) - I actually found quite a few of these endangered flowers when
I worked as a field ecologist in the Pinelands.

Yes, the
coastal plain was underwater, and the sandy deposits that cover the
Pinelands are why the Cohansey aquifer exists the way it does.

Big shout out to Burl Co!
