Our waterways are what make New Jersey special.
They provide safe drinking water for our families, great recreation, and a critical resource to New Jersey's economy. But what if you knew that the streams feeding our most precious waterways and the wetlands surrounding them were at risk of pollution and destruction because of polluter loopholes?
Come out and support stronger protections for all of our waterways, and learn how the rule will impact our waterways and drinking water across the state and locally - and why your involvement is key.

Trenton, NJ - Today a Coalition of environmental, labor, community and faith-based groups united at the Statehouse to announce their Freedom from Frack Waste campaign.
"Thank you, Governor Cuomo, and thank you to the incredible diverse grassroots effort against this dirty, dangerous, and unneeded fossil fuel project. This is a victory for the shipping and fishing industries, small businesses, the environment, national security and so much more, most notably democracy. This decision was a no brainer but these days you can take nothing for granted. Shame on the fossil fuel industry and the feds for making so many waste precious resources including time away from families on this.
Today the President rejected the Keystone XL pipeline proposal. Clean Water Action National Oil & Gas Campaigns Coordinator John Noel released this statement:
"Today the Obama Administration stood with landowners, farmers, and Native American communities to protect our water and the people in the path of the Keystone XL pipeline. There is no upside, no "national interest" to a pipeline that carries the dirtiest oil on the planet through the nation's heartland; there is only the risk of catastrophe - to our ground and surface water from an inevitable spill and to the climate from increased carbon pollution. As the Environmental Protection Agency noted in its review, the Keystone XL would significantly increase emissions from tar sands. It fails the President's 'climate change test.'Published On:11/06/2015 - 11:43
