Water Bodies Where Treated Wastewater is Released: Passaic River
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% of its suspended solids and over 99% 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.To see your system's financial information, click here
