The Riverside Water Reclamation Authority was created on July 26, 1967 by the Township Committee of the Township of Riverside under Ordinance 1967-13.
Riverside’s commitment to our residents includes maintaining a top-notch sewer system. Riverside constructed its first sewer system almost 100 years ago. At the time, it cost $80,000 and served some 3,500 residents. It was state-of-the-art for 1908-1909 with about 15 miles of trunk sewers, four digestion tanks, four settling beds, four stone settling beds and 275 manholes.

As the population and number of businesses grew, so did the need for upgrades. In 1941, engineers completed plans for a new treatment plant, but the U.S. Government put such construction on hold until after World War II.

In 1947, the Riverside Sewerage Authority held its first meeting. Two years later, the township started paying Authority members. After adding approximately 35,000 feet of extensions, trunk lines and equipment, the Authority dedicated a new modern plant in 1957. The plant served the community well for more than two decades until new regulations required further upgrades.
