“Protecting Our Water – Improving The Environment”

Shark River Dredge update!

OK Despite many setbacks & almost 40 years of fighting the current Shark River dredging has come to the end. WE should see much improvement in the River Channels & Spur. The goal was 100′ wide -6′ @ mean low tide. The turns in Belmar should also be much wider. We should have the full report in the next few weeks. More to follow.
Thanks for everyone’s help & support.

Thanks for Helping!

Our Annual Spring River Cleanup was a success!

SRCC Highlights

  • E. Coli Poop-ulates Shark River Waters
    The primary pollutants in the Shark River are E. coli bacteria, sediment particles, and fertilizer. In the case of swimmers, the DEP estimates on the current bacterial exceedance for human health standards is that a minimum of 37 out of 1000 people exposed to these waters will get an eye, ear, throat, nose or other infections caused by staph and strep pathogens as well as a chance of hepatitis and viral diseases.
  • Shark River dredging saved from TTF shutdown
    The Shark River dredging project that was stalled by the gas tax impasse will resume "any day" now after state officials realized they risked losing an undisclosed amount of federal funding for the work, a Monmouth County freeholder said.
  • Announcement on restart of Shark River dredging project canceled without explanation
