DENNIS TOWNSHIP ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION "Article on Dennis Township Runs in Annual Campground Guide"
Dennis Township Environmental Commission - Contact: Ray Rebmann at firstname.lastname@example.org Immediate Release—February 15, 2016.
--Dennisville—Dennis Township has hit the big time. An article about the many unique historic and environmental attractions of the township has been published in the 2016 New Jersey Campground and RV Park Vacation Guide. The article, written by Old School House Museum curator and Dennis Township Environmental Commission (DTEC) Vice-Chairman, Ray Rebmann features photos of the museum as well as Magnolia Lake and Mill Hill in Ocean View.
The article emphasizes the many points of interest for visitors coming to the township to camp at any one of Dennis' sixteen campground facilities. Over 140,000 copies have been printed and free copies are already available at the museum and at the municipal building in Dennisville.
"The publication will be distributed at travel shows and camping expos along the eastern seaboard throughout the year," according to Joann DelVescio, Executive Director of the NJ Campground Association.
Campgrounds comprise a significant business segment in our Dennis Township community, and both the museum and DTEC will continue to work with local business for the benefit of residents and visitors alike.
Quick Facts about OWBs in New Jersey:
Outdoor wood boilers (OWBs) burn wood to heat liquid (water or water-antifreeze) that is piped to provide heat and hot water to occupied buildings such as homes. OWBs are not banned in New Jersey. However, if an OWB violates N.J.A.C. 7:27 Subchapter 3, then you may get fined. C&E and/or the local CEHA respond to and investigate neighbor complaints. Consider all the facts before purchasing an OWB. Residents need to check their town's local ordinances and permit requirements before purchasing and installing an OWB.
NJDEP does not certify residential or commercial OWBs. If your OWB violates NJDEP regulations, you may have to uninstall it.
OWBs can have a negative impact on you and your neighbors' health.
There are no federal regulations for OWBs. However, the USEPA has voluntary standards that manufacturers may choose to implement for their units. These units are cleaner than older versions of OWBs but they still may not meet New Jersey's regulations.
