The Northwest Bergen County Utilities Authority (NBCUA) was established in 1952 in order to provide sewage treatment services to the municipalities in the northwest section of Bergen County. Originally established as a sewer authority, the Authority was authorized by NJSA 40:14b to reorganize as a utilities authority in 1981. As an independent agency, the NBCUA has the authority to enter into service agreements, to set rates and fees for services and to sell bonds. The NBCUA receives sewage from its member municipalities and conveys the sewage to its treatment plant in Waldwick. The municipalities own, and are responsible for, the operation of their local collection systems that feed the NBCUA's interceptor/pumping station system. The NBCUA serves approximately 75,000 people. The Authority continues a program of facility upgrading to meet all water and air emission requirements.
