This is your river and it needs your help to clean it up
The Shark River Cleanup Coalition Inc.’s primary concerns are improving the water quality of the Shark River and its tributaries and protecting the wetlands and wildlife. By better managing this watershed, we seek to enhance commercial fishing, recreational uses, swimming and drinking water supplies. We do this by educating the residents and elected officials of the towns within the Shark River watershed. We conduct monitoring of water quality through biological, physical, and chemical analysis, provide strong advocacy, lead and assist others with similar goals, increase community awareness of the problems impacting the watershed and conduct cleanups in the watershed. We protect our drinking water sources in the watershed and their feeder systems. We document historic uses of the waters in our watershed and protect them from degradation as provided for in the Federal Clean Water Act. We seek funding for these actions as provided through membership dues, donations, foundation grants, government grants, corporate grants, pro bono services and in kind contributions.
As a means of accomplishing our plan and achieving our objectives we envision the following 10-part plan for implementation in the coming years. Click here to read more about this plan.
