Fish kills in New Jersey, Delaware prompt lawsuit

Tuesday, October 01, 2013

Environmentalists from New Jersey and Delaware say three local industrial facilities are killing large numbers of fish, and they are suing to stop it.

Officials unveiled the "Stop the Fish Kills" campaign Tuesday in Trenton.

Organizers say PSEG's Mercer Generating Station in Hamilton Township, the Salem Nuclear generating Station in Lower Alloways Creek Township and the Delaware City Refinery are to blame.

The environmentalists say the facilities emit an excessive amount of pollution that is impacting local waterways.
