BERKELEY TOWNSHIP MUNICIPAL UTILITIES AUTHORITY
The Berkeley Township Municipal Utilities Authority (BTMUA) was created in 1988 to provide water service to the last “unfranchised” area of Berkeley Township. Four private water companies already served portions of the Township but the central third of the Bayville area was served by private wells that were being threatened by contamination.
Kupper was responsible for planning, design, permitting and construction services relating to the Authority’s initial water supply project. After preparing a Water Supply Master Plan, which identified present and future needs, Kupper provided engineering services for the Phase I construction program. This first phase served approximately 1000 existing units in the most densely developed portions of the BTMUA’s service area. The project included two 750 gpm water supply wells, a 400,000 gallon elevated water storage tank, approximately 37,000 feet of water mains, a 1.0 MGD water treatment plant and administrative offices. The Phase I construction cost approximately $3.5 million and was completed in mid 1993.
Kupper investigated and pursued funding on behalf of the BTMUA. Kupper eventually secured approximately $3 million in a combination of grants and low interest loans from the NJDEP Spill Compensation Fund and Well Field Loan Program.
