Ask Card – Combined Sewer Overflow and Climate Change

The Jersey Water Works (JWW) Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Committee has been reviewing the CSO Long Term Control Plans for NJ sewer agencies, commenting publicly that the LTCPs provided limited guidance on how CSO utilities expect to handle climate change. The Climate Change Subcommittee created this Ask Card to educate stakeholders to ensure the CSO permits incorporate current climate change data.
