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.

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
