Highlands Borough recently closed on an $8,329,712 loan with the NJ Water Bank to improve coastal community water quality. The existing sanitary sewer system in the borough consists of vitrified clay and has deteriorated due to infiltration and inflow. The sewer system is overburdened resulting in an overflow of contaminated water into the streets. This contaminated water flows into the stormwater conveyance system that discharges into Jones Creek, creating an unsafe swimming condition further downstream at Sung Harbor Beach at the Borough Community Center. Replacing the sanitary sewer system will keep it within capacity and eliminate contaminated water from the stormwater system and swimming areas.
