Pollution

Pollution, source and non source point run-off, salt from roads and byways, noise, motors, trash, dumping ground, the Rancocas Creek Watershed encounters its fair share. A review of statistics of material and trash pulled from the N Branch Mt. Holly Oxbow shows predominate plastics, followed by metal, followed by large items.

The Creek is not a toilet. Don’t treat it as such. Set a personal objective to not toss stuff in the creek. Participate in Adopt a Creek events, an Environmental Cmte Creek clean-up, attend municipal and creek centric events. Get outside. Help preserve and restore the Rancocas Creek Watershed waters, tidal and non-tidal.
