Pilgrim Pipeline: The proposed Pilgrim Pipeline is a dual 178 miles pipeline between Albany, NY and Linden, NJ. It will likely contain Bakken shale oil that will be sent south to New Jersey and refined products (including kerosene) will be sent north back to Albany. The pipelines will cross five New Jersey counties (including Bergen and Passaic) through some of the most fragile areas vital to maintaining water quality in all communities. There would be major impact on environment, public health and property values you would bear the burden of having this risk and disruption without any benefit. A spill or explosion could be catastrophic, endangering our water supply, risking the lives of thousands, and overwhelming our emergency response resources. We are working to get communities in both counties to pass resolutions opposing this pipeline project. For more information, please contact Jeff Rapaport at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Oil Trains: Thousands of substandard rail cars are used by CSX to move Bakken crude oil on the West Shore line through Bergen County each year. The threat or danger it poses to our communities demand a moratorium on the use of these substandard rail cars to safeguard our families and communities. The North Jersey Group is joining with other groups to raise awareness of this issue and get the federal government to pass stricter legislation to regulate use of these car. For more information, please contact Mary Ellen Shaw at email@example.com.
TRAIL MAINTENANCE: Marty Cohen and Buddy Jenssen organize various trail maintenance proejcts throughout the year where we do clean-up in our nearby state parks and forests. For more information or to volunteer, please contact Marty at firstname.lastname@example.org.
OUTINGS: If you would like to learn how to become an outings leader, lead, please contact Ellen at email@example.com or Mary Walsh at firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information.
