The Navesink River was once considered a national model for water quality improvement. Yet the 2014 Integrated Report lists the Navesink River as impaired due to numerous pollutants. This deterioration of water quality recently culminated with a prohibition on shellfishing in over 500 acres of waters from the Oceanic Bridge west to Red Bank. Clean Ocean Action is currently researching, organizing, and planning an initiative focused on the Navesink to address the sources and causes of pollution in this iconic waterbody. The goal is to return the river to a model example of private and public action to address water pollution. Stay tuned for more information.
