Association Requests Pump Stations Be Eligible for WSIC
NUCA NJ strongly supports the implementation of a Wastewater Service Improvement Charge (WSIC). As we explained previously to the BPU, wastewater utilities would now have an important tool available to get ahead of costly emergency situations and thus the ability to be more proactive in terms of making the necessary repairs. By accelerating infrastructure improvements, not only is the public better protected from the impact of a failing wastewater system, but both the State’s environment and economy would similarly benefit. In our recent letter to the BPU we sought to ensure that pump and lift stations would be eligible investments.
