Sewer Authority Mitigation Plan Reduces Risk of Environmental Disaster


October 07, 2015
EATONTOWN, N.J. - Among the most devastating effects of Superstorm Sandy in New Jersey was the storm's impact on sewage treatment facilities along the coast.

During and after the storm, sewage plants and pump stations were inundated by flood waters and without power for as long as three days, resulting in the discharge of some two billion gallons of untreated and partially treated sewage into New Jersey waterways (New York Daily News, 4/30/2013).
