"We are grateful to the Murphy Administration and for the leadership Attorney General Grewal and DEP Commissioner McCabe continue to display in holding polluters accountable in our state. The twelve NRD lawsuits, including the two today, over the past two years send a clear message that this administration is strongly committed to cleaning up New Jersey and protecting the health and wellbeing of our families and communities. We encourage them to continue with this important work and look forward to helping them make New Jersey a cleaner place for all its citizens."
