Old Bridge Municipal Utilities Authority

Old Bridge Municipal Utilities Authority OBMUA is a public entity responsible for wastewater collection, water treatment and water distribution for the Township of Old Bridge
(3)

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.

We appreciate the recent feedback from the Old Bridge parent portal and sincerely try our best to keep the residents in our community as informed as we can.

As with all battery powered devices like E-ZPass and smoke detectors the batteries eventually fail. Unfortunately our 1st generation wireless water meter batteries are failing at a very high rate and require an upgrade.

We were all very happy in the community to install these devices over a decade ago. To avoid inconveniencing our residents with a quarterly knock at the door to read a water meter, this option was certainly appreciated by everyone.

For all its worth this problem is not isolated to Old Bridge as these units were installed all across the country.

We try to mail out approximately 100 notifications a month to contact customers who have water meters that repeatedly have not transmitted their actual water use. If this happens your water bill will denote an E - for estimated use.

If you want to be proactive and if you see your bill has been estimated please feel free to call our office at 732-566-2534.

You can also feel free to email us at [email protected] and please include your customer account number, street address and contact number in the email. We will do our best to schedule a mutually convenient appointment to resolve the issue.

We at the OBMUA pride ourselves in trying to go the extra mile and realize how inconvenient it is to wait all day for a cable company or utility to keep their appointment. We really try our best to give a very accurate window when our techs can come to your residence.

We are very sensitive to our communities concerns and please be aware that all of our service technicians have an ID and wear OBMUA logo shirts and/or jackets. Unless their is a water main break please be aware that we will not knock at your door unless we have made a mutually agreed upon appointment.
