The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (Department) is responsible for administering the Treatment Works Approval (TWA) program which establishes and implements minimum standards for the approval of the design, construction and operation of treatment works to ensure that wastes are properly collected, conveyed and treated before discharge to the waters of the State.
The TWA fee structure rules are set forth at N.J.A.C. 7:1C-1.5. Fees are assessed to cover the Department’s costs to review, issue, and manage TWA permits.
The purpose of the TWA fee report is to provide a summary of the projected costs to administer the Treatment Works Approval (TWA) Program and the fee structure necessary to recover those costs pursuant to N.J.A.C. 7:1C-1.5. The estimated budget includes employee salaries, fringe benefits, indirect costs and operating costs associated with the TWA Program.
