New Sewer Connections

The Authority has a sewer connection fee program which requires any person seeking to construct a direct or indirect connection to a municipal sewer system or to the Authority's System to pay a connection fee to the Authorty. Information related to this topic may be accessed by clickling on the following link, Sewer Connections.

Liquid Waste Acceptance

In addition addition to treating residential and commercial wastewater, NBCUA also treats the septage collected from privately owned septic systems.  Part of the required maintenance for a privately owned septic system is that it be periodically pumped out and cleaned.  Privately owned septage cleaning companies routinely provide this service to individual property owners. Once they have done so, they need to responsibly dispose of the septage they collect.  NBCUA only allows "permitted" haulers to dump at their facility.  For more particular details regarding the Authority's conditions for accepting septage or to become a "permitted hauler," follow the link labeled Liquid Waste Acceptance.

Inustrial Pretreatment Program

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) has declared the Authority a “Delegated Agency”, requiring the Authority to administer and enforce an Industrial Pretreatment Program (IPP).  This program regulates discharge limits for all Industrial Users discharging into the NBCUA sewer system.  Details of the Program, including concentration limits for pollutants may be found on the following link Industrial Pretreatment Program. Potential industrial dischargers, including water treatment purveyors seeking to discharge into the NBCUA system must adhere to the requirements of the Program.
