The Borough adopted a position opposing the amendment to the New Jersey Surface Water Quality Standards Designating the South Branch of the Raritan River as Category one Waters. Many other area municipalities have done so such as Flemington and Raritan Township.
The impact to the Borough is partially reflected on the map showing the area that could require more complex permitting in order to undertake projects such as road maintenance, repairs or improvements to the Borough sewer pump station. Additionally, the numerous privately held properties could be similarly affected.
