NUCA NJ Urges BPU to Bolster Investment Tools
NUCA NJ recently provided comments in support of the implementation of a Wastewater System Improvement Charge (WSIC). By adopting a WSIC, wastewater utilities would have a tool available to get ahead of costly emergency situations and 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. Staff will continue to work with the BPU on this issue.
