SAYREVILLE — The Middlesex County Utilities Authority will receive $1.3 million in federal funding for emergency repairs to the Sayreville Sewerage Pump Station that was damaged as a result of Superstorm Sandy, U.S. Rep Frank Pallone (D-NJ-6) announced Monday.
This grant is in addition to the $2.44 million that the Middlesex County Utilities Authority was awarded in 2013 to repair the damaged pump station and install and operate a surge diversion facility to minimize surges to the pump station in the event of a future storm. The station pumps sewage from 30 municipalities in Middlesex and Somerset counties.
“As we continue to rebuild, we have a unique opportunity to improve our public infrastructure so it is stronger and can withstand future storms,” said Pallone. ”I am grateful that FEMA recognizes the importance of these ongoing efforts in New Jersey.”
