UNION BEACH, N.J. - Colonial's Linden team conducted a beach sweep on the New York Harbor on October 10, 2017 with the New York/New Jersey Baykeeper. The removal of trash from the beach will prevent it from entering the harbor, and also create a cleaner beach for locals to enjoy.

"We had a great clean-up with the Colonial Pipeline crew," said Debbie Mans, executive director of the NY/NJ Baykeeper. We really enjoyed talking to Colonial employees about our work and improvements in Raritan Bay and were thrilled by how much they knew about our oyster restoration projects."

This marked the second consecutive year Colonial partnered with the NY/NJ Baykeeper to clean this beach. Union Beach offers a stunning view of the New York City Skyline on the New York Harbor.

Colonial Pipeline partners with conservation groups active on its ROW in every state it operates in. This engagement allows Colonial to better fulfill its mission to protect the environment we share our pipeline with. In 2017, Colonial will participate in 12 events with local conservation groups, most occurring in October.
