2014 Governor's Excellence Award

12/12/2014

Innovative Technology Category Winner: South Monmouth Regional Sewerage Authority The South Monmouth Regional Sewerage Authority (SMRSA) operates 11 sewage pump stations in Monmouth County. Its station in Sea Girt suffered repeat damage and outages due to storm flooding. In 2010, a project team designed a mobile enclosure to make the station more resilient to future storms. The mobile facility consists of two rooms: one for an emergency generator and one for electrical equipment. During storms the mobile facility is moved to higher ground while an expendable portable generator and transfer switch power the station. Once the storm subsides, the mobile facility is moved back in place and hooked up to the pump station. The mobile system minimizes damage, reduces plant down time, and lessens the potential of sewer overflows. SMRSA estimated $1.5 million dollars in savings since 2010 because there was no substantial damage to the Sea Girt station during Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy. The design was deemed a best management practice by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

2012 WAVE Awards

2012 WAVE Awards

The South Monmouth Regional Sewerage Authority earned two Wave Awards.

The first, "Energy Savers Award" for its recently commissioned Co-generation System uses biogas, a by-product of anaerobic digestion. The system currently saves $270,000 annually in electricity as well as another $33,600 in annual natural gas savings.

The Second Award won was in the “Forward Thinking” category for the redesign of a pump station located in a flood-prone area in Sea Girt. The station is designed such that crucial equipment, which potentially could be damaged by floodwater, can be removed when a flood event is predicted. This design enables SMRSA to avoid potential costly equipment loss while maintaining pumping capacity during flooding conditions.

Accepting the AEA 2012 WAVE Achievement Awards for the SMRSA are Bernard J. Bujak, Finance and Administration Manager and James P. Brennan, Superintendant.

Touring SMRSA

Touring SMRSA

The South Monmouth Regional Sewerage Authority offers guided treatment plant tours to all local  high schools, community groups and environmentally conscious individuals to educate how the water we use from nature is cleaned and safely returned to the environment.

Visitors see the various ways pollutants are removed from wastewater--replicating nature’s own processes, but in a condensed time frame. They also see how wastewater solids are processed so that they can be beneficially re-used, and how energy is recovered through The SMRSA Co-Generation System.

General Information

  • Tours are free, however, reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance.
  • Tours last between 90-120 minutes beginning with an orientation video and ending with a question-and-answer period.
  • Tours guides are managers and operators of the plant who provide a thorough, systematic explanation of wastewater treatment.
  • There should be one teacher/chaperone for every 10 students.
