Adopted Amendment to the Ocean County Water Quality Management Plan Public Notice
Adopted by NJDEP 12/30/2015 and published in NJ Register 2/1/2016 as 48 N.J.R. 231(a) | PDF
Approval by Board of Freeholders
Resolution April 20, 2016

The Ocean County Wastewater Management Plan (WMP) is an integral component of an area-wide Water Quality Management Plan. The intended purpose of the WMP is to project future development, estimate the wastewater management needs associated with that development, and specify the preferred wastewater treatment alternative.  This Plan also provides the vehicle to ensure that sewer service is not extended into environmentally sensitive areas. 

The WMP also identifies public water supply service areas of water purveyors and identifies the water supply needs associated with proposed development.  Lastly, because the WMP projects future land use and shapes the pattern and density of development through the wastewater management alternatives selected within given areas, this plan is instrumental in quantifying existing and future nonpoint source pollution loads and in implementing best management practices to reduce those pollutant loads.
