The Warren Township Sewer Department was created effective July 1, 2022. Prior to July 1, 2022 the management of the Warren Township Sewer System was the responsibility of the Warren Township Sewer Authority which has been dissolved.
The Sewer Department's primary responsibility is to plan for, construct, operate and maintain wastewater facilities within the Township.
Warren Township's sewerage system is divided into five sewer service areas, denoted by the Stage I and II service area, the Stage IV service area, the Stage V service area, the Middlebrook service area, and the Berkeley Heights service area. These areas are each served by a separate sewerage treatment plant. Sewage from the Middlebrook area discharges through the Township of Bridgewater (“Bridgewater”) and is eventually treated at the sewerage treatment plant operated by the Somerset Raritan Valley Sewerage Authority (“SRVSA”). Sewage from the Berkeley Heights area discharges through the sewerage collection system and is eventually treated at the sewerage treatment plant operated by Berkeley Heights.
If you are looking to make a sewer payment for your sewer bill, payments are taken through the Tax Collector's Office.
