Some 1,700 contaminated sites and over 60 Superfund sites are located within one mile of the Raritan River. We encourage remediation and reuse of contaminated sites throughout the basin and prevention of future pollution. We also promote exchange of information about contaminated sites to educate and inform the communities where these sites are located.
