The Hazlet Environmental Commission has cancelled the November 14, 2016 meeting.  The next meeting of the HEC is 8pm Monday, December 5, 2016. There will be a brief meeting with our annual Holiday Party to follow.

 

EVERY DROP COUNTS!
 
New Jersey has had some heavy rains this summer so our thoughts may not be turning to water conservation. However, since water is a precious natural resource, it's always  a good time to conserve!  The site below provides many useful tips to help you save water both inside and outside your home.  
 
 
Be a water saver and remember- EVERY DROP COUNTS!
 
All are welcome to attend the monthly meetings of the Hazlet Environmental Commission.
 

Meetings are held the first Monday of every month at 7:30 p.m. at the Hazlet Municipal Building.


From the Hazlet Environmental  Commission
 
The Zika virus has been in the news.  The virus is transmitted through a bite from an infected mosquito. Not all mosquitoes can transmit Zika virus or any mosquito-borne disease. There are many factors that make the transmission of Zika unlikely in our area.  However, being vigilant about controlling mosquito growth is good practice at all times.
To find out what you can do - with little time, effort or cost- go to the following Web site for more information.
