This Division also has jurisdiction over contracts for repairing and installing new storm and sanitary lines and pumping stations as needed. The Division also maintains usage and flow records for the sanitary sewers within the Township and is responsible for Industrial billing.
It should be noted that blockages in sanitary sewer laterals from privately owned buildings may be the responsibility of the Township of Piscataway through this Division under specific conditions. The conditions are as follows:
- There must be a cleanout along the lateral where close circuit television equipment may be inserted. If none exists, at the property owner’s request, the Township will install a cleanout for $1,500.00 which can be paid in full at the time of installation or paid in four quarterly installments of $375.00 through the sewer use bill.
- The owner of the property must retain a plumber to determine the location of the blockage with his equipment indicating it is within Township property.
- The Township will be responsible for removing the blockage only if the blockage is located within Township property and not on private property.
Citizens noting any concerns under the jurisdiction of the Sewer Division may call the main number 732-562-2390 to report their concerns.
