NJ Community Water Watch

The Toms River Times had a recent article about Make a Difference Day in Toms River. The Ocean County College chapter of New Jersey Community Water Watch spent a Saturday in early October cleaning up Long Swamp Creek which empties into the Toms River and Barnegat Bay. Chemistry Professor Marashi of OCC told the reporter: "We must call upon our young generation to participate in activities, such as New Jersey Water Watch, to help educate, organize and actually clean our precious resource, water. Educators, parents, business leaders and politicians must expand awareness of these (environmental) issues and assist in fashioning solutions and processes to prevent the deterioration of our environment and help in improving it." Why not volunteer for such an organization as a member of the "OCL Going Green Team?"
