run-off from surface drains after rain storms. 2. As the
Navesink is a tidal estuary, within 24 hours the tides have swept away the
pollution. This enabled NMHA to restart the River Rangers program for 2017 as
the daily program will avoid those locations that are polluted after a rainstorm

get to land immediately. River Rangers participate in a land-based program for
the duration of the lightning period/forecast.
