Solutions to Stormwater Pollution 

Did you know: After water is treated and discharged from our facility, it’s actually of a much higher quality than the river water!

The Livingston Township Sewer Utility is responsible for treating almost all sewage generated by the Township.  The Sewer Utility is a tertiary treatment plant which generates effluent — or outflow — of a very high quality which helps to safeguard the environment.  Treated sewage commonly has over 98 percent of its suspended solids and over 99 per cent of its 5-Day BOD (Biochemical Oxygen Demand) removed before it is discharged into the Passaic River. That makes it cleaner than the river it joins.

That means to a safer and healthier environment for local aquatic ecology and underlying groundwater.

The Sewer Utility is also responsible for the 137 miles of sewer line that run through Livingston. There are over 4,000 manholes in town to provide access to the sewer lines for repairs and maintenance.

There are also 7 lift stations that help deliver millions of gallons of wastewater to the treatment plant every day.  Lift stations help transport wastewater by first elevating it and then letting it flow down through the system by gravity. This provides a much more economical solution than installing pumps within the system itself in order to move the fluid.
