OBMUA is a public entity responsible for wastewater collection, water treatment and water distribution for the Township of Old Bridge The Authority was created on November 4, 1985, by an ordinance of the Township of Old Bridge.
The Authority resulted from consolidation of The Old Bridge Township Sewerage Authority (“OBTSA”) and the former Old Bridge Municipal Utilities Authority (“OBMUA”), which was responsible for wastewater treatment and collection and water distribution, respectively. The combining of these operations has resulted in improved efficiency and cost-effectiveness of their operations under the Act, specifically N.J.S.A. 40:14-20. The OBMUA is a public entity however it is funded entirely by revenues related to water and wastewater operations, not via municipal or state taxes. Appointed by Township Council, the five (5) member Board of Commissioners and (2) alternates oversees the OBMUA budgets, expenditures and improvements as well as making other policy decisions. Daily operations are managed by the Executive Director.

The NJDEP has provided us with these recommendations for how to restore water quality in buildings with low or no use.
NJDEP is prompting building owners and businesses to take appropriate steps to prevent drinking water quality problems prior to re-entry into buildings after an emergency or other unforeseen challenge that resulted in low or no use. The internal plumbing system within individual buildings that serve drinking water to the public need to be restarted properly before consumption. Stagnant water can enable bacterial and/or pathogen growth and can cause unwanted contaminants (e.g., lead) to leach from pipe materials, all having the potential to cause significant health impacts.
NJDEP recommends “flushing” premise plumbing by opening taps or faucets and systematically letting the water run to remove water that has been standing in the interior pipes and/or outlets.
Best practices including flushing may vary for each type of establishment, its
configuration, plumbing components, number of outlets and length of water lines.
NJDEP recommends hiring a licensed plumber or operator when necessary for assistance in determining the volume of water associated with your plumbing components (e.g., lengths and diameters of piping) and the rate of water flow from a tap or faucet in determining appropriate flushing times. General guidelines are outlined below.
(e.g., schools, daycares, restaurants, casinos, golf clubs, churches, office buildings, gas stations, campgrounds, parks
