Stop Poisoning the Delaware River With Industrial Filth

Target: Shawn M. LaTourette, Commissioner of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection

Goal: Tackle pollution in the Delaware River.

The Delaware River, a critical waterway that sustains life and commerce in New Jersey, is under assault. Pollution from industrial waste, agricultural runoff, and plastic litter is turning this once-vibrant river into a toxic stew. Immediate intervention is not an option; it’s a necessity.

The river is not merely a geographical feature; it’s a lifeline for communities, wildlife, and local economies. It provides drinking water, supports fisheries, and offers recreational opportunities. Its degradation poses a severe threat to public health, disrupts ecosystems, and could cripple industries that rely on its waters.

Sign the petition to demand that the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection enact immediate and effective measures to combat pollution in the Delaware River. Essential steps should include stricter industrial waste management, agricultural runoff controls, and public awareness campaigns about pollution prevention.


Dear Commissioner Shawn M. LaTourette,

The Delaware River, a vital artery of New Jersey’s environmental and economic health, is in peril. Pollution levels are soaring, endangering aquatic life, compromising water quality, and posing a direct threat to human health.

We insist that you take immediate, decisive action. A comprehensive plan must be urgently developed and implemented to halt the pollution plaguing the Delaware River. This plan should not only enforce strict waste management protocols but also engage the public in pollution prevention initiatives.

The stakes are sky-high. The Delaware River is more than just a waterway; it’s an integral part of New Jersey’s natural and economic fabric.

We implore you to act with the urgency this critical issue demands. Implement strategies that will not only clean up the Delaware River but also ensure its long-term health and sustainability.
