The 69-acre Harrier Meadow wetland enhancement site is located within the Saw Mill Creek basin. The former NJMC acquired the property in 1996. Harrier Meadow was initially part of a much larger marsh system influenced by the Kingsland and Sawmill creeks. The wetland has been cut off from full tidal inundation due to the construction of the Transco pipeline and the New Jersey Turnpike Western Spur. In the 1960’s, Harrier Meadow was the disposal site for shot rock from the construction of US Route 280. The location of Harrier Meadow lies in the shadow of the 85-foot ridge of exposed red shale to the west that stretches from North Arlington to Lyndhurst. Immediately north of the site is the closed Erie Landfill, which was primarily a repository of municipal waste. Access to Harrier Meadow is limited to NJSEA guided tours.
