The primary cause of pollution of the eastern section of Raritan Bay is the transfer of untreated and inadequately treated wastes from Upper Bay through the Narrows. The major cause of pollution of the western section is the direct discharge of raw and inadequately treated municipal wastes. Additional pollution in the western section results from the interchange of these waters with the polluted Raritan River and Arthur Kill. Plans or construction are underway for improved wastes treatment facilities for a number of sources in the area. These problems are discussed.
