Saving the Raritan River :)) wooo

Raritan river
The Raritan River is a major river of central New Jersey in the United States. Its watershed drains much of the mountainous area of the central part of the state, emptying into the Raritan Bay on the Atlantic Ocean. The Raritan River is an important source of drinking water for the central portion of New Jersey. Two water purification plants, operated by New Jersey American Water, are located where the Raritan River and its largest tributary (the Millstone River) meet just east of Manville, New Jersey.

What chemicals are in the raritan river?
In suburban New Jersey, a toxic, cancer-causing chemical seep draining into the Raritan River from the 80-year old American Cyanamid Superfund Site and posing a great health risk to residents. This 575-acre site sits adjacent to the Delaware and Raritan Canal, which provides drinking water to hundreds of thousands of people in the surrounding area. They must take immediate action to remove the toxic chemicals draining into our regional resource, the Raritan River, the longest river solely in New Jersey.

How did they get there?
80-year old American Cyanamid Superfund Site. They drain their waste in the water when it floods.

what is agent orange?
Agent Orange was the code name for a herbicide developed for the military, primarily for use in tropical climates. Although the creation of the product goes back to the 1940′s, serious testing for military applications did not begin until the early 1960′s. The purpose of the product was to deny an enemy cover and concealment in dense terrain by defoliating trees and shrubbery where the enemy could hide. The product “Agent Orange” (a code name for the orange band that was used to mark the drums it was stored in, was principally effective against broad-leaf foliage, such as the dense jungle-like terrain found in Southeast Asia. The product was tested in Vietnam in the early 1960′s, and brought into ever widening use during the height of the war (1967-1968), though it’s use was diminished and eventually discontinued in 1971.

where was agent orange? in nj
Stored in bound brook but every time it rains and the river floods the chemical agent ends up in the raritan bay.

what is pcb?
PCB is a polychlorinated biphenyl. Its a chemical is chlorinated biphenyl that leads to seriouse health effects.

where did it come from?

The Delaware and Raritan canal
The Delaware and Raritan canal are located in Princeton, New Jersey. The Delaware & Raritan Canal Princeton portion runs between Alexander Road and the Millstone Aqueduct for 6.33 miles. These bodies of water are used for recreational purposes such as canoeing, catch and release fishing and ice skating. The water is treated and used as additional water for the town of Princeton and other neighboring communities. The canal’s peak period was during the 1860′s and 1870′s. Records indicate that in 1871, 2,990,000 tons of coal were shipped by canal. Water quality from the Delaware River feeding into the canal is rated good. It is monitored and quality tested along the canal.
