About The Ocean County Utilities Authority
The Ocean County Utilities Authority is a regional wastewater reclamation system which operates three wastewater treatment facilities with a total combined capacity of eighty million (80) gallons per day. The collection system consists of forty (40) pumping stations, approximately two hundred (200) miles of force main and gravity lines, and three ocean outfall lines which serve thirty-one (31) municipalities in Ocean County and five (5) municipalities in Monmouth County. On average more than ninety percent (90%) of the pollutants normally found in the wastewater received are removed before discharge of the treated effluent to the ocean at points over a mile from shore at depths of forty (40) feet or more, with high dilution ratios. This system replaced approximately forty (40) package sewerage treatment plants that in some cases provided significantly lower levels of treatment and discharged effluent into inland streams, bays, and outfalls only short distances from shore. The citizens of Ocean County are indeed fortunate to have state-of-the-art treatment facilities available to accommodate both present and future growth as well as a dedicated group of hardworking personnel doing t...heir best to protect the public health and environment. Without their skills, expertise and above all their commitment, operation of the Authority's treatment facilities would be impossible.
