Dye release to measure water flow and dispersion

Dye release to measure water flow and dispersion in waters used for shellfish harvesting.

Two dye applications will be made in the upper bay in Salem County starting near early morning high tides the week of April 9. Each application will continue until late evening. As a result, portions of the Delaware Bay, Stow Creek and Mad Horse Creek may turn reddish in color. The dye used in the study is not harmful to people or the environment and is used commonly in water-quality and dispersion tests. Information collected during this study will be used to evaluate potential water quality improvements that would result in a water classification upgrade.
For more information see the NJDEP news release.
