Jersey City Municipal Utilities Authority

The Jersey City Municipal Utilities Authority (JCMUA) operates both the sewerage and water systems of Jersey City. The JCMUA maintains over 230 miles of sewers and 5,000 catch basins daily.

In 1949, JCMUA began as the Jersey City Sewerage Authority (JCSA). The JCSA built two sewage treatment plants to meet early requirements for treating wastewater prior to discharging into the rivers. In 1998, the JCSA became the JCMUA when the Authority took over the responsibility of the Jersey City water system. 

The Jersey City Municipal Utilities Authority pledges to operate and maintain its sewerage and water facilities in a fashion that will protect the public health and environment of all its constituents. It will always strive to accomplish this goal in the most competent, economical and compassionate manner possible.


We at XCEL are truly honored to have the Jersey City Municipal Utilities Authority as part of our Select Employer Group for the past 16 years.
