Sewer Bans

The Sewer Ban Program requires the imposition of sewer connection bans for treatment plants failing to meet their NJPDES effluent discharge limitations, or conveyance systems that do not have adequate conveyance capacity. A moratorium may also be imposed on treatment plants when the sum of existing wastewater flows and the flows allocated to approved projects (that are not yet operational), has reached 100 percent of the plant's permitted capacity.

The purpose of the sewer ban program is to limit further pollution by restricting additional sewage flow to the non-conforming treatment works.

Sewer Ban Exemptions

The Sewer Ban Exemption Program, administered in conjunction with the Sewer Ban Program, allows projects that meet specific criteria to be exempted from a sewer ban.
