KNOCK KNOCK…who’s there? Not Clean Ocean Action! (COA)

COA does not go door-to-door. We do not solicit funds or signatures, or distribute information through canvassing. If you have questions or concerns, COA suggests contacting your town administrator. Please further note that Clean Ocean Action has no financial affiliation with the organization called Clean Water Action (formerly known as NJ Environmental Federation) or any other canvasing organization.


Don’t be fooled, it’s not over yet! While NY Governor Cuomo recently denied the project, the denial left the door open for Williams/Transco to reapply the next day. It is now up to Governor Murphy and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) to make the final decision on the stop the pipeline. We have seen widespread opposition to this pipeline all across the state. Together we can send a strong message to Governor Murphy and the NJDEP to deny this project once and for all and end this unprecedented attack on our environment, coastal communities, and safety.


All eyes now on Governor Murphy!

The comment period has now closed. The NJDEP will be reviewing the comments to render their decision on the many permits needed for the pipeline. A decision must be made in June.

Now the focus is on Governor Murphy from now until the decision this June

1. Call Governor Murphy (609) 292-6000. Write him at

2. Sign the petition – share with family and friends

3. Attend the rally on May 31st at 4pm! RSVP on our Facebook Page.


Read COA's formal comments submitted to the NJDEP on May 2nd.
