CLARK–The Coalition for Sewer Rate Relief today publicly called on Gov. Chris Christie to investigate the Rahway Valley Sewer Authority (RVSA), citing rampant waste, mismanagement and abuse as the rationale.
“We need Gov. Christie to tackle the Rahway Valley Sewer Authority the same way he’s tackled the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission, pension reform, and New Jersey’s budget,” said Dhaval Brahmbhatt. “The waste, mismanagement and abuse occurring at the RVSA have led to skyrocketing rate increases, with some businesses paying as much as 150% more in just one year.”
Brahmbhatt, general manager of the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Clark, is the chairman of the Coalition for Sewer Rate Relief, an organization comprised of businesses that are based in Union County and included in the RVSA service area.
On March 8, Brahmbhatt sent an official letter to Gov. Christie requesting that his administration launch a probe into the RVSA. In his letter, Brahmbhatt writes:
“You have demonstrated that you aren’t afraid to tackle the tough issues facing our state. This issue – rampant waste at RVSA – is affecting our ability to do business in New Jersey. We need sewer rate relief and we need it now.”
