Raritan Bay

NY/NJ Baykeeper is unable to operate the Head Mistress pumpout boat on the Raritan Bay until NJDEP processes our annual application.

We understand that delays are a result of the challenges faced by COVID-19 on budget and staff, and that NJDEP is addressing the processing backlog. We expect to be operational on Raritan Bay several weeks after we are notified that our application has been approved along with timely expense reimbursements.
