New Jersey


In 1999, NSU acquired the community’s existing wastewater facility, a system designed for the 1,200-residence community for adults 55 and older. The community is located on a 295-acre site surrounded by sprawling grounds and the facility is permitted to discharge 250,000 gpd to the Assiscunk Creek, a NJ DEP designated Category 1 waterway in the State. The designation means that the waterway is of significant environmental importance to the watershed and to the wildlife depending on it for sustenance and therefore, extra care must be taken during the discharge stage of the treatment process.
