DEP TO HOLD PUBLIC MEETING ON PROPOSED DRAFT
SEWER SERVICE AREA MAP IN CAMDEN COUNTY
(11/P28) TRENTON - The Department of Environmental Protection will hold a public meeting to discuss Camden County's draft sewer service area map on Tuesday, April 5, as part of a planning effort to update the Wastewater Management Plan for this county.
At issue will be a service area covering all or parts of 37 Camden County municipalities.
The map to be discussed on April 5 is a preliminary working draft, developed by DEP and reviewed by Camden County and the affected cities and towns. It reflects proposed changes in wastewater service area designations to eliminate conflicts with Category One waters, wetlands, threatened and endangered species habitats and other unique and rare ecological communities.
The draft is subject to change in response to information provided by the public. The preliminary working draft map can be viewed at: http://www.nj.gov/dep/watershedmgt/DOCS/20110405camden_map.pdf
This is a public information session where residents and developers can examine maps and ask questions concerning the proposed changes in sewer service area designation.
The meeting will take place at the Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority's main auditorium located at 1645 Ferry Avenue in Camden, between 5:30 - 8:30 p.m.
The DEP and Camden County will accept comments and information related to this map from the date of the posting of this public notice until May 5, which is 30 days after the public meeting.
