New Jersey Receives $70 Million for Water Infrastructure Projects

The EPA has provided $70,413,000 to the State of New Jersey for improvements to be made to water projects for public health and the environment.

The EPA has provided $70,413,000 to the State of New Jersey for improvements to be made to water projects for public health and the environment. Most of the funds will be used for drinking water and wastewater system improvements.

"Clean drinking water and proper wastewater treatment are fundamental to protecting people’s health, but aging water infrastructure needs to be upgraded and repaired,” said EPA Regional Administrator Judith A. Enck. "This federal funding will help New Jersey communities upgrade their drinking water and sewage treatment systems, both of which are imperative for healthy communities.”

New Jersey has received $2.4 billion from the EPA since 1989 through the Clean Water State Revolving Fund and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund programs.
