Restoring the Raritan
Known as New Jersey's Chemical Coast, the Raritan River played a critical role in boom of the Industrial Revolution. Even though the river suffered greatly from industry abuse, we now have an opportunity to restore it.
Brownfields to Greenfields
Because of EWA's 20 years of advocacy, this mile-long riverfront that discharged endless garbage directly into the Raritan, has been stabilized and restored and serves as a positive model for transforming Brownfields to Greenfields.
Wildlife in the Raritan River Watershed
A harp seal basks on the banks of the Raritan River. Wildlife in the Raritan River Watershed has rebounded dramatically with the return of many species including Striped Bass, American Beaver, Shad, and Eastern Painted Turtle.
