Partnership to provide leachate pretreatment facility to NJ landfill

Middlesex and Applied Water Management will construct a leachate pretreatment facility for the Tinton Falls, N.J., landfill.

ISELIN, NJ, Sept. 11, 2013 -- A new leachate pretreatment facility for the Monmouth County Reclamation Center at the Tinton Falls, N.J., landfill is planned to be designed, constructed and operated by Middlesex Water Company (MSEX), a provider of water, wastewater and related services primarily in New Jersey and Delaware, and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Applied Water Management (AWM).

Middlesex Water will serve in the role of guarantor of AWM's performance on the project, in addition to providing operational support. The company also recently partnered with NSU, in an alternative energy joint venture project serving the Village of Ridgewood, N.J.

"Our participation in this project with Monmouth County and with NSU/AWM demonstrates our commitment to partnering strategically in environmentally-sound projects that both serve the public good and create value for the client and our shareholders," said Dennis W. Doll, Middlesex Water president and CEO. "We look forward to working with the County and our partner on this endeavor, as we expand our geographic footprint into Monmouth County, N.J., and also further expand our ability to serve industrial clients," added Doll.

Dominic Kulik, Chairman and CEO of NSU also commented, "NSU is extremely pleased to begin another contract with our partner Middlesex Water. Our contract with Monmouth County will dramatically reduce costs for the landfill leachate treatment through our innovative biological treatment plant to be designed, built and operated by our team. In turn, it will significantly reduce carbon footprint by eliminating trucking to offsite treatment."
