Jersey Water Works is a collaborative effort of many diverse organizations and individuals who embrace the common purpose of transforming New Jersey’s inadequate water infrastructure by investing in sustainable, cost-effective solutions that provide communities with clean water and waterways; healthier, safer neighborhoods; local jobs; flood and climate resilience; and economic growth.
Through their participation on committees, as supporting members, and through their own work, member individuals and their organizations advance the following shared goals over the next three to five years:
Effective Green and Gray Infrastructure
Urbanized areas with sewer service employ a balance of robust green and gray infrastructure that manages stormwater effectively and provides community benefits
Smart Combined-Sewer Overflow Control Plans
Combined sewer overflow Long Term Control Plans (LTCPs) have cost-effective solutions that provide community benefits and are adopted by permit deadlines
Financially Sustainable Systems
Operations and financing plans for drinking water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure are adequate to update and maintain systems in a state of good repair.
Local officials, community stakeholders and ratepayers understand, influence and support effective management of their water infrastructure.
