The Gloucester County Utilities Authority (GCUA) is a regional wastewater collection and treatment system serving 16 municipalities and several industrial customers in Gloucester County. Every year, the GCUA accepts and treats over 6.3 billion gallons of wastewater from the residents, businesses and industries it serves. Each and every year, the GCUA reclaims this 6.3 billion gallons of wastewater and returns it back into the environment as a high quality resource to be enjoyed by the people residing along the Delaware River Estuary.
In addition to providing treatment of domestic wastewater, the GCUA owns and operates a septage pretreatment facility processing and disposing of thousands of gallons a day of trucked-in, non-hazardous waste streams, such as liquid, thickened and dewatered sewage sludges; non-hazardous industrial wastewater; domestic landfill leachate; non-petroleum oils and greases; grease and scum from domestic wastewater treatment facilities; domestic and commercial septage; and backwash slurries from potable water treatment facilities.
The GCUA is located just off Exit 19 of Interstate 295 on Paradise Road in West Deptford Township, New Jersey.
