The program is aimed at protecting the waters of the state by preventing the entry of increased pollutants from inadequate facilities. The administrative and technical requirements of the TWA program are stipulated in N.J.A.C. 7:14A-22 and 23, respectively. sewer_trench

Treatment Works Approvals are a type of construction permit wherein the division evaluates the proposed treatment plant's design and its ability to meet the effluent standards specified in the NJPDES permit.

They are issued after a discharger has obtained a NJPDES permit.

The Treatment Works Approval process also involves assessing the design of new sewer lines and other wastewater conveyance facilities (force mains, pumping stations, etc.) as well as evaluating downstream conveyance and treatment capacity.
