The Sewer Utility operates and maintains a 16 million gallon per day (MGD) advanced wastewater
treatment plant, which currently has an average daily flow of 9 MGD. The Sewer Utility also operates
and maintains approximately 370 miles of sewers and 28 pump stations which make up the Collection
System. The Wastewater Treatment Plant and Collection System operate under permits issued by the
New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). The highly treated wastewater, which meets
all NJDEP Permit Requirement flows into the Rockaway River where it meets the Whippany River. The bio-solids
(sludge) produced by the advanced treatment process are dewatered and sent to an out of state landfill.
Septic tank waste, sewage sludge and gray water are accepted from the area for treatment at the Plant.
A Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) Facility operated by a private firm through a lease agreement with the
Township also operates at the Plant and accepts food type FOG for treatment.
The Sewer Utility operates and maintains all sanitary sewers in the Township from the cleanout in front
of homes and businesses to the Treatment Plant.
The Parsippany-Troy Hills Wastewater Treatment Plant through agreement accepts and treats wastewater from
Mountain Lakes, East Hanover, Montville and a portion of Denville.
The Sewer Utility develops plans and programs for the extension and improvement of public sewer services in
the Township and at the Treatment Plant. The operation and maintenance of a Wastewater System is capital and
maintenance intensive undertaking. Because of the nature of the material being handled and the ever changing
NJDEP Permit Requirements the Sewer Utility must always be vigilant in its efforts to provide the level of
service required by the NJDEP and demanded by the Citizens.
If a resident or business in the Township is experiencing a sewer connection problem, not a clogged toilet or
sink, they should call the Sewer Utility at (973) 428-7593. We can advise if the problem is the responsibility
of the Sewer Utility or if it is the property owner’s responsibility and they must contact a plumber or contractor.
