Title: Statewide Sewer Service Area for New Jersey, Edition 20150123 (Util_wastewater_servicearea)
Abstract: Note: The original version was signed into adoption on October 11, 2006 and a notice appeared in the NJ register on November 6, 2006 NJ. This is a graphical representation of the States Sewer Service Area (SSA) mapping. The SSA mapping shows the planned method of wastewater disposal for specific areas, i.e. whether the wastewater will be collected to a regional treatment facility or treated on site and disposed of through a Surface Water (SW) discharge or a groundwater (GW) discharge. Areas not specifically mapped represent either water features where no construction will occur or land areas that default to individual subsurface disposal systems discharging less than 2,000 gallons/day (gpd) where the site conditions and existing regulations allow. This mapping, in conjunction with the text of the associated Water Quality Management Plan (WQMP), is used to make consistency determinations under the Water Quality Management (WQM) Planning rules, N.J.A.C. 7:15. The SSA mapping is prepared under the Water Quality Management (WQM) Planning rules, N.J.A.C. 7:15 in conjunction with the Statewide WQM Plan, which together constitute the Continuing Planning Process conducted pursuant to the Water Quality Planning Act, N.J.S.A. 58:11A-1 et seq., the Water Pollution Control Act, N.J.S.A. 58:10A-1 et seq., and N.J.S.A. 13:1D-1 et seq., and as required by Sections 303(e) and 208 of the Federal Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1251 et seq.)
Purpose: The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) administers the WQM Planning rules, N.J.A.C. 7:15, in conjunction with the Statewide WQM Plan, which together constitute the Continuing Planning Process conducted pursuant to the Water Quality Planning Act, N.J.S.A. 58:11A-1 et seq., the Water Pollution Control Act, N.J.S.A. 58:10A-1 et seq., and N.J.S.A. 13:1D-1 et seq., and as required by Sections 303(e) and 208 of the Federal Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1251 et seq.). According to these regulations, the Commissioner of the DEP shall not undertake, or authorize through the issuance of a permit, any project or activity that conflicts with the applicable sections of adopted WQM Plans or the WQM Planning rules. The existing rules establish a mechanism for the determination of consistency between proposed projects or activities requiring Departmentally issued permits and the WQM Plans. One component of the WQM Plans is a Wastewater Management Plan (WMP). A WMP is a document that provides 20 year planning for wastewater and certain other water quality concerns for a specific planning area. SSA mapping is required to be prepared for all WMP's and is used in conjunction with the text of the adopted plans to determine consistency between projects and the WQM Planning rules, N.J.A.C. 7:15
