DEP Commissioner Bob Martin, staff and the Barnegat Bay Blitz sponsors extend their sincerest thanks to all of the individuals, schools, municipalities, groups and businesses that participated in this spring's Barnegat Bay Blitz on June 3, 2016. Since Governor Christie's action plan for Barnegat Bay was announced in 2010, seven successful Blitz cleanups have been conducted, resulting in the collection of thousands of pounds of litter.

In 2015-16 DEP sponsored the 3rd annual Barnegat Bay Blitz Rain Barrel Challenge. The Rain Barrel Challenge is a competition that engages schools and youth groups located in the Barnegat Bay watershed to learn about the bay and how people can help protect its water quality and natural resources. The students investigate the theme of the Challenge then work together to design rain barrels that address the theme.
