    Barnegat Bay Funding Initiative

    Mission:   Assist communities to construct and fund sustainable infrastructure that protects water quality and public health.

    The Municipal Finance and Construction Element (MF&CE) is responsible for administration of a number of state and federally funded programs for the planning, design, and/or construction of wastewater, drinking water, and stormwater/nonpoint source management programs. These programs are discussed in more detail below. In addition, the MF&CE also administers the Treatment Works Approval (TWA), the Capacity Assurance, the Sewer Ban, and the Clean Watersheds Needs Survey (CWNS) programs.

    The TWA program regulates the construction and operation of wastewater treatment and conveyance systems, while the Capacity Assurance and Sewer Ban programs prevent further pollution by restricting additional sewage flow to non-conforming treatment and conveyance systems.
