New Jersey Sewage Infrastructure
Improvement Act Grants
The New Jersey Sewage Infrastructure Improvement Act establishes comprehensive requirements for the Department and municipalities/authorities to address combined sewer overflows and stormwater management. The Department provides grants for planning and design for up to 90 percent of the costs involved for combined sewer overflow control projects throughout the state to eliminate dry weather overflows and to control the discharge of solids and floatables from combined sewers. In addition, the correction of interconnections/cross-connections in stormwater systems located in Atlantic, Cape May, Ocean and Monmouth counties are also eligible. Loans for the construction of these projects are available through the Environmental Infrastructure Financing Program.
