Many of the towns in our service territory are along the coast. Clean beaches contribute to a cleaner environment and the economic vitality of our entire South Jersey region. In both the spring and fall, we participate in Clean Ocean Action's Annual Beach Sweeps. Volunteers not only clean the beaches, they record the quantity and types of debris found for data that is published annually to help identify pollution sources and aid legislators in enacting protections.
