NY/NJ Baykeeper fights for access to fishable, swimmable, clean waterways across the NY-NJ Harbor Estuary.
NY/NJ Baykeeper continues to be at the forefront of many environmental advocacy and legal campaigns.
The NY-NJ Harbor Estuary, also known as the Hudson-Raritan Estuary, is a system of waterways and habitats that form one of the most intricate natural harbors in the world. Since 1989, NY/NJ Baykeeper has worked to protect, preserve and restore the environment of the most urban estuary on Earth.
NY/NJ Baykeeper holds exciting events all year round! Please check our Events calendar regularly to stay in the loop. Hope to see you there!

Since 2015, NY/NJ Baykeeper has partnered with Monmouth County Health Department to provide free pumpouts to recreational boaters in the Shrewsbury and Navesink Rivers.
Help us reduce raw sewage pollution by requesting your FREE pumpout on the Navesink or Shrewsbury Rivers call 848-231-2202 or channel 9 (if our vessel is in sight) on the water. You do not have to be present for your boat to be serviced.

Please note: We are currently ONLY providing pompous in the Shrewsbury and Navesink Rivers. Due to the lack of funding and administrative capacity we are not providing this service in Raritan Bay or Jamaica Bay. We look forward to working with all potential agencies, organizations and others to develop a way to bring sustainable pumpout services in the future.
