Northwest Bergen County Utilities Authority

A message from Brian Chewcaskie, Chairman
Northwest Bergen County Utilities Authority.

Welcome.  Since 1969, the NBCUA has been proud to serve the Northwestern section of Bergen County, NJ, from our highly-efficient, modern plant in Waldwick.  With an ever-increasing population, today we effectively serve more than 75,000 residents.

On a constant basis, we meet the critical wastewater collection and treatment needs of the region, including: Allendale, Franklin Lakes, Ho-Ho-Kus, Mahwah, Midland Park, Ramsey, Saddle River, Upper Saddle River, Waldwick, Wyckoff, and a portion of the Village of Ridgewood.

In addition to the main plant, NBCUA maintains and monitors 31 miles of sewer lines utilizing the most advanced measuring systems and televised inspection technologies to detect potential trouble spots before they become problematic.  Our technicians and inspection teams are highly trained professionals serving our communities 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our mission is to provide the most effective service while meeting the strictest environmental standards. We are dedicated to serving the tax-paying public at the lowest possible cost.

With our extraordinary group of Commissioners and Authority Staff, the NBCUA has continually strived to improve the wastewater treatment system in a cost efficient manner.  We recently installed an emission-free solar power facility that not only upgrades our plant, but reduces our energy cost. In 2012, we broke ground to expand our service area into Franklin Lakes which will increase our customer base resulting in lower operating costs for all our member communities.

The NBCUA is committed to provide quality service to our member communities while maintaining stability in our rate structure.

This website is designed to provide a full picture of the Authority operation.  Here, the customer can view budget, audits and other financial information and can access Authority meeting agendas and minutes.  We believe this will allow a better understanding of who we are and what we do.

Thank you for visiting the NBCUA website.

Chairman Brian M. Chewcaskie
