The Boonton Reservoir Project is an effort to make the land around New Jersey's Boonton Reservoir publicly accessible to the approximately 15,000 residents who live nearby.

In 2018, OSI helped orchestrate an historic 40-year lease and cooperative management agreement of the site between Jersey City and the Morris County Park Commission.

The following report is a comprehensive Property Management Plan for the Reservoir, developed by OSI and its partners; the document was issued and approved by Jersey City in 2019.
