Sewage Free Streets Public Comments
When it rains in Jersey City, the combined sewer system overflows into nearby waterways and localized flooding can have a combination of sewage and stormwater. This is known as a combined sewer overflow (CSO). The Jersey City Municipal Utilities Authority (JCMUA), has submitted a Long Term Control Plan (LTCP) to reduce and/or eliminate CSOs.
