Take Action to Protect NJ's Drinking Water

Fresh off weakening important flood and clean water rules, Governor Christie is now going after the Highlands, 800,000 acres in north- western New Jersey that supplies over half of the state’s drinking water. Contact your state legislators and legislative leaders to pass ACR192 and block the Christie Administration's effort to weaken protections in the Highlands, the source of half of NJ's drinking water.

Lead and Drinking Water in New Jersey

The lead crisis in Flint, Michigan; Newark, New Jersey and across the country signals a serious need to reexamine national and state drinking water policies, repair and update our crumbling water infrastructure, and make sure sure we reduce lead at the tap, especially where children are concerned.

 

Take Action for Clean Water Now - Let's Block The Dirty Water Rule!

Governor Christie’s Administration is dismantling key clean water protections, increasing flooding and polluting drinking water.

Just Say No to Straws

Every day in the U.S., people use 500 million straws a day - enough to circle to planet more than two-and-a-half times! Straws are now one of the top 10 marine debris items found on our beaches.

Clean Water Action was honored to join over 200,000 people at the People's Climate Movement in Washington DC. Our New Jersey team joined NJ Sierra Club and Bus for Progress in hosting several buses that made the trip from New Jersey to Washington DC. We met so many energized folks, people from every race and age group, who came from all over the country for this one day movement to demand action for climate change and water change. Here are some of our favorite stories and photos from the day!
