Secaucus Municipal Utility Authority Mission and Responsibilities

Preserving and Protecting the Environment

The Secaucus Municipal Utilities Authority is responsible for processing all of the wastewater generated within the Township of Secaucus. The Authority owns and operates seven (7) pumping stations that vary in capacity from approximately 30,000 gallons per day to over 2,000,000 gallons per day.

Additionally, the Authority maintains approximately 10 miles of collection system piping. This collection system is maintained by the Authority and preventative maintenance is routinely performed. The Authority also assists the Department of Public Works with the storm water system. The wastewater treatment facility, located at 1100 Koelle Boulevard, currently processes 3,150,000 gallons per day. 

This facility is an advanced secondary (Level III) treatment facility, with stringent discharge limitations that are met prior to final discharge into Mill Creek {a tributary of the Hackensack River}. There has not been a violation of these New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection imposed limits since the facility upgrade was completed in 1991. The facilities are manned 24 hours per day, seven days per week, including holidays.
