RTMUA Mission Statement:

The mission of the Raritan Township Municipal Utilities Authority is to cost effectively operate and maintain a wastewater collection and treatment system for the protection of the environment and for the benefit of our customers and the public while being in compliance with all regulatory requirements.

What is RTMUA?

The Raritan Township Municipal Utilities Authority (RTMUA) is a 3.8 mgd conventional activated sludge wastewater treatment plant (sewer plant) which includes 11 pump stations, a 61 mile collection system, and a septage and greywater receiving facility. Three belt filter presses dewater sludge for off site incineration. RTMUA also operates and maintains a wet weather facility, one of the very few licensed in the State of New Jersey. The operating crew consists of approximately 17 employees and is unionized. The Board of Commissioners consists of five members, each of whom is appointed by the Raritan Township Committee for a five-year term.

RTMUA Usage Rules:

The RTMUA would like to remind its customers that sump pumps, floor drains, roof leaders etc. are not to be connected to the sanitary sewer system.

RTMUA's Sewer Use and Regulations state "No person shall connect roof, foundation, areaway, parking lot, roadway, or other surface runoff or groundwater drains to any sewer which is connected to a Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW) facility unless such connection is authorized in writing by the Authority".

These additional flows create stress on our sewer plant and will eventually cause a fee increase to pay for changes needed to process the extra flow. The increase in the user fee has been minimal and, with your help in this area, we will continue to work to keep it reasonable.

If you are concerned that you may have such a connection and would like help in addressing it, please contact RTMUA at (908) 782-7453, Monday – Friday, 8am – 4pm
