Clean Water Fund's NJ office was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. It was underwater during the storm and cannot be salvaged. We need your help.

Please Help Us Get Back on Our Feet

Just a few weeks ago, Hurricane Sandy pounded the Eastern Seaboard, leaving a wake of destruction in its path. Hundreds of thousands of people were left without water, heat and power and countless stranded without a home or business to go back to - including those who worked in our Belmar office.

As we help others rebuild, your help is needed to relocate our State Office to a new space not too far away, in Long Branch, NJ. Unfortunately, we are not eligible for flood insurance. Other forms of assistance are most importantly focused on getting food and shelter to families displaced by Hurricane Sandy.

For 30 years we've taken action for clean water in New Jersey and we're not going to let a hurricane stop us. In order to start fighting again, we need the basics for a modern office - office supplies, professional quality office furniture, a new phone system, computers, printers, copier and more. But, most importantly, we need you - can you make a special relief gift today?

Environmental Impacts of Sandy

Hurricane Sandy not only impacted our homes, businesses and lives - it wreaked havoc on the environment. During the storm, toxic chemicals, debris, sewage and pollution washed into our rivers, lakes and oceans.

A severe oil spill at the Motiva Refinery dumped diesel fuel into the Arthur Kill, leaving a lasting scar on sensitive salt marshes, vital wildlife habitat and fisheries.

Raw sewage dumped into waterways, roads, lawns and even homes - putting public health and environment at immediate risk, bringing excessive nutrients and cause for future algal blooms and fish kills.

Safety flaws were discovered at Oyster Creek nuclear power plant. The plant should remain closed until it is proven safe to operate.

Many of the long-term effects of Hurricane Sandy are yet to be seen. That's why Clean Water Fund needs to get back to work - protecting water supplies, environment, and communities. We are eager to explore ways to help reduce the threat/impact of climate change and "super storms" like Hurricane Sandy. But we can't do this without a functioning State Office.

For 30 years we've had you at our side. Please help us rebuild.
