Join the Hammonton Green Committee for short videos followed by a discussion on what can be done to protect our most precious resource from threats like plastic and groundwater pollution at "How We Can Combat Threats to Our Water," on Monday, March 27, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Stockton Kramer Hall, 30 Front Street.
Richard Bizub of the Pinelands Preservation Alliance will dive into how threats like overuse, pollution and degradation threaten our drinking water source -- the Kirkwood-Cohansey Aquifer. The aquifer is one of the purest water sources in New Jersey and in the U.S., but will only remain so if we protect it. His discussion will showcase why it is essential that we preserve and value our water supply.
Monica Coffey of Sustainable Downbeach will focus on the negative impacts of single-use plastics, especially in relation to our oceans and wildlife. Coffey was instrumental in getting legislation passed to ban balloon releases in our shore communities and is working to institute a plastic bag ban.
