The sign on the 250-gallon tank said "Babies on Board," and to the environmentalists and scientists on the dock in Ocean Gate on Wednesday, the contents of that tank couldn't have been more precious if it was one of their own.

They were baby oysters – 21,000 of them – and after spending a month growing in that tank, they were ready to be released into their natural habitat in what environmentalists acknowledge is an ambitious attempt to restore an oyster population in Barnegat Bay.

So when the boats carrying those baby oysters pulled away from the dock Wednesday morning, they carried with them the hopes of environmentalists and scientists of a cleaner bay that in the future will be home to an abundance of sea life that had long ago disappeared.
"The American Littoral Society held a send-off party in Ocean Gate for 1.5 million oyster spat, or seedlings, which were taken by boat to an artificial reef about a quarter-mile off a section of Berkeley Township called Good Luck Point, " Bruce Shipkowski writes for the Associated Press.

Recent testing by the West Virginia Water Research Institute has found evidence of radiation contamination in water discharges from the abandoned underground Clyde Mine in Washington County (Pa.) near the Monongahela River that are likely related to past dumping of shale gas drilling wastewater.

Five years after killing a project that would have doubled the number of rail tunnels between New Jersey and Manhattan, Gov. Chris Christie is saying he will call for more tunnels to be built under the Hudson River if he were elected president, according to a report by Politico.

When the “scrubber” is down on the Fenimore landfill site, several residents say there are still noxious odors emanating from Mooney Mountain.
And several affected residents have asked that the township send out a notice when the scrubber, a device used to extract hydrogen sulfide gas from the ground and burn it off, is down for repairs, maintenance and service.

The New Jersey Legislature has handed Gov. Chris Christie a bill that should be quite popular in the farm state of Iowa where Christie currently is campaigning for the White House.

The state Senate yesterday gave final passage to A-1812 (Wilson) which extends coverage of the state's lemon law to farm tractors. [New Jersey considering a lemon law for farm tractors]   #farming   #agriculture   #lemonlaw   #politics  #Iowa #ChrisChristie
