04/22/14 Forsythe / Toms River / Island Heights

Posted: April 23, 2014 in Uncategorized

I took a trip down to Forsythe Wildlife Refuge in Oceanville, NJ. On the way home, my friend Scott O’Donnell took me to a couple of abandoned boats on the Toms River. The one boat has been leaking fuel oil in the river for months. Scott originally photographed it back in January on the frozen river. The Coast Guard and EPA were notified months ago. A boom has been placed around the boat, but the fuel has spread over a large area. I’m not sure if any other action was taken besides the boom.
