The Bergen County Utilities Authority (BCUA) is responsible for wastewater treatment for forty-seven Bergen County municipalities and solid waste management services for all seventy Bergen County municipalities. The BCUA's two wastewater treatment facilities process over 83 million gallons per day of wastewater. Innovative programs developed during the past several years, including the construction of a cogeneration facility and implementation of an energy master plan, have not only reduced costs at both the treatment facilities, but have also significantly reduced the BCUA's carbon footprint through the use of biogas to create clean energy.
