New Jersey Chapter

About Our Chapter

The New Jersey Chapter of the NAWC contains a strong mix of large, medium and small companies. Several of the largest investor owned water companies in the U.S. are headquartered or have operations in New Jersey. Collectively, our chapter members serve approximately 4.4 million people throughout the state.

The breadth of experience of chapter members and their collegiality make our chapter unique. Also unique is our interaction with the New Jersey Utility Association (NJUA) in which various chapter members are also members. The NJUA covers the broader utility industry. Their Executive Director, or other staff, attend the chapter meetings to update members on issues of potential importance to the group, such as pending legislation or proposed new regulations.

We work to advance issues of interest to our membership and encourage educational opportunities among the regulatory community. We have spent considerable time over the past few years working with a variety of stakeholders, including the Board of Public Utilities (BPU), Rate Counsel, various customer groups, and the New Jersey Utilities Association to advance DSIC in New Jersey.
