Clean Ocean Action Pushes For Law Protecting Coast

The Clean Ocean Action environmental group will cover the New Jersey and New York shoreline this summer in an organizing campaign to build support for federal laws protecting the ocean.

The group says the shore faces threats from ocean blasting for oil and gas development, pollution, and reckless development.

Participants will walk, ride and paddle from Cape May — at New Jersey’s southern tip — to Montauk, N.Y. on Long Island from Aug. 10 to 24. They will speak to beachgoers about threats to the ocean and beaches.

The group wants a Clean Ocean Zone law to reduce pollution by prohibiting ocean dump sites and new wastewater discharge outfalls. The zone would support artificial reefs, beach replenishment, recreational and commercial fishing, responsible development of renewable energy, and clean ocean activities.
