Sanitary Sewer System

The Jackson Township Municipal Utilities Authority (JTMUA) owns and operates the sanitary sewer collection system in Jackson Township. The sewage collection system consists of one hundred and thirty-three (133) miles of gravity sewer mains and twenty-seven (27) pump stations. The majority of the sewage generated in Jackson is conveyed to and treated by the Ocean County Utilities Authority’s (OCUA’s) Northern Water Pollution Control Facility. The southeast portion of the Township has limited service by the OCUA’s Central Water Pollution Control Facility. The effluent is ultimately discharged to the Ocean after treatment.
