The Mayor and Council have authorized a project to include the videotaping, cleaning and repair of the borough’s sewer lines.
This program will enable the town to create a library of the entire system which will identify the size of the pipes and in addition locate damaged pipe which allows for infiltration of rainwater.
This program will also identify illegal sewer connections from sump pumps, that when put into the system drains to the Bergen County Utilities Authority and is billed to the Borough.
The town has been broken down into seven sections starting at the southeast corner and working their way down to the New Milford border.
On occasion, there may be a slight disruption in traffic on some of the narrowest of roads, this will only be temporary.  Please click on the Sewer Line Rehabilitation at the lower right hand corner of this page for further information.
