Wastewater Facility

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) administers the Statewide Water Quality Management (WQM) Planning rules, N.J.A.C. 7:15.

The Ocean County Board of Chosen Freeholders, along with the Department of Planning is the designated wastewater management planning agency for the County and the portion of Monmouth County located within the Metedeconk River drainage Basin.

Planning staff works alongside our municipalities, the Ocean County Utilities Authority and the NJ Department of Environmental Protection to delineate sewer service area boundaries in the County. The latest update to the Ocean County Wastewater Management Plan began in November of 2008.

Coastal Zones and Pinelands Jurisdiction:
  • "New Jersey's Coastal Zone Management Program generally prohibits new development on beaches, dunes and in coastal high hazard areas; therefore, these areas are excluded from the sewer service area. Existing lawful development that is already connected to the wastewater treatment works remains consistent with this wastewater management plan. New development necessary to support the Department's public access policies for which there is no alternative location as demonstrated by a CAFRA permit issued by the NJDEP under N.J.S.A. 13:19-1 et seq. are also consistent with this wastewater management plan."
  • The new NJDEP sewer service area boundaries do not affect Pinelands designated Regional Growth Areas, Towns, or Villages. If you need additional information regarding development or sewer infrastructure in the Pinelands, please contact the Pinelands Commission.
