USA: Delaware and Raritan Dredging to Improve Canal Health

A spokesman for the state Department of Environmental Protection stated that the piles of debris including tires and other materials at Bulls Island State Park have resulted from a routine maintenance dredging of the Delaware and Raritan Canal, reports NJ.com.

What looked like fill material was being bulldozed along about 400 feet of the floodplain. It was full of solid waste: tires, metal, bottles and cans, chunks of steel and construction debris, wood, and PVC pipe,” Larry Ragonese said.

Mr. Ragonese explained that the state Water Supply Authority is doing the work and it has obtained “permits from the DEP and the Army Corps of Engineers.”

He also added that the cleanup “is a permitted action that is being done to improve the health of the canal.”
