NEPTUNE Meter Purchase and Installation

Construction of upgrades and improvements to The South Orange Water Utility, Township of South Orange Village, at a cost of $3,000,000 were financed by the New Jersey Water Bank (NJWB).  The NJWB is a State Revolving Fund program jointly administered by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the New Jersey Infrastructure Bank (Infrastructure Bank) and uses a combination of funds provided by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the DEP, and the Infrastructure Bank to provide very low interest loans to borrowers for environmental infrastructure projects. 

This project will provide water quality benefits of accurate usage and reporting for residents and businesses in the Village of South Orange Township, Essex County, NJ. .   

State Revolving Fund programs around the nation provide states and communities the resources necessary to maintain and improve the infrastructure protecting our valuable water resources nationwide.
