Trump Administration Threatens our Delaware River

The Calhoun Street Bridge has spanned the Delaware River from Trenton to Morrisville, PA for 133 years. Over those years, it has seen many governors and presidents, but probably none as hostile to the fragile river environment as Chris Christie and Donald Trump.

People who care about clean drinking water and marine life only have another year to worry about our governor, but Donald Trump’s policies will threaten the Delaware for years to come. A proposed incinerator in Bucks County will foul the air and water. Fracking in Pennsylvania and pipelines across the river are anathema to the clean drinking water supply that millions of New Jerseyans depend on.

Today, over 100 environmentalists (and one dog) from both sides of the river gathered at the bridge to raise awareness to the threat posed by Donald Trump. Their organizations have seen an uptick in the number of volunteers and contributions since the November 8 debacle.

You can hear some of the concerns that our environmental leaders have in the video below.
