Rally for the Navesink

What is Rally for the Navesink?

Rally for the Navesink is a coalition of groups dedicated to improving and maintaining water quality in the Navesink River watershed through research, education and policy. The coalition was formed in 2016 in response to a downgrade of over 500 acres of of shellfishing area due to pollution. Pollution sources include urban and agricultural stormwater runoff and failing infrastructure. 

Clean Ocean Action released an in-depth report on these issues in June of 2016, and as part of Rally for the Navesink, has been organizing public meetings, source tracking efforts, and pursuing regulatory and policy tools as well as education and outreach in the watershed.
