Climate change is here. New Jersey municipalities are already struggling with sea level rise, more intense storms, and extreme heat. As 21 cities plan upgrades worth billions for their outdated combined sewer systems, are they taking these dangers into account?
Learn how municipalities can factor climate change in their combined sewer overflow (CSO) long term control plans at a free event on January 28. Join New Jersey Future, the Sewage-Free Streets and Rivers campaign, and the New Jersey Climate Change Alliance for a conversation with state and local leaders to learn how they’re planning to incorporate climate challenges into sewer system upgrades — and how those upgrades will affect your neighborhood. Most importantly, explore solutions everyone can work toward.
Attendance is free, but registration is required. Sign up now to reserve your spot.
