Welcome to the Monroe MUA

The Monroe Municipal Utilities Authority (MMUA) is an independent public body politic and corporate of the State of New Jersey that was created by virtue of an ordinance of the Township of Monroe, Gloucester County, New Jersey, adopted September 26, 1957 under New Jersey State Municipal and County Utilities Authorities Law P.L. 1957, c. 183, s. 1, c40:14B-2 et seq. 1. and was reorganized as a Municipal Utilities Authority, pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 183 of the Laws of New Jersey of 1957, on May 8, 1959, by ordinance of the Township of Monroe.

The Authority was created for the purpose of constructing and operating a sanitary sewerage system for the collection and disposal of wastewater and a water supply and distribution system within the Township of Monroe, County of Gloucester.  The Authority has 8 wells in Cohansey strata with pumping capacity of 4MGD; 2 ASR Wells and 28 pumping stations; and also a sewage collection system with sewage being pumped to the Gloucester County Utilities Authority.  Our total population served is 36,100 with 14,132 water customers and 14,291 sewer customers.

The Authority has broad powers under the Act including, among others, the following: to hold, operate and administer its property; provide for bonds and secure their payment and rights to holders thereof; to charge and collect user fees to ensure the revenues of the Authority will at all times be adequate to pay all operating and maintenance expenses, including reserves, insurance, extensions and replacements, and to pay the principal and interest on any bonds, maintain such reserves or sinking funds therefore as may be required by the terms of any contract of the Authority; and to make and enforce rules and regulations for the management of its business and affairs.  There are no tax monies supporting the Authority.  Its debt service and operational expenses must be paid by the revenue from customer service fees.

Over the years, we have dedicated ourselves to producing drinking water that meets or exceeds all state and federal drinking water standards. As regulations and drinking water standards change, we are committed to incorporating these changes system-wide in an expeditious and cost-effective manner.  We strive to deliver the best quality drinking water through innovation and by remaining vigilant in meeting the challenges of source water protection, water conservation and community education.
