POLLUTION ISSUES

A RECENT DISCHARGE ONTO THE SAND FROM THE SEA AVE. OUTFALL STANCHION

We worked with CLEAN OCEAN ACTION , municipal officials, and companies like ABTECH ATLANTIC to formulate solutions to the discharge onto the sand at the Sea Ave. Outfall Stanchion. We are taking a multi-faceted approach to remediation of the outfall

  • Public Awareness and education as to the effects of litter, use of pesticides and fertilizers, animal waste, and other polutants have on storm water drainage systems.
  • Working with municipal, county, and state officials on initiating and monitoring
  • an effective storm water management plan
  • Demanding regularly scheduled testing of the Outfall discharge and the SAND adjacent to the outfall stanchion
  • Working with the private sector to investigate technologies available to help remediate the system
  • Investigating federal and state funding sources available for the remediation program


On April 4, 2006, C.R.A.B. was invited to attend a Point Pleasant Beach Council Caucus session to hear a presentation from the County Engineer's office on the Outfall Stanchion. At our request , Jennifer Sampson, Former Principal Scientist for Clean Ocean Action also attended the meeting.
