Chatham Township (1405)
This municipal chapter is an element of the Morris County Wastewater Management Plan prepared by the Morris County Department of Planning and Development in accordance with N.J.A.C. 7:15. Chatham Township was incorporated in 1806; however, in 1897 Chatham Borough seceded from Chatham Township. Madison and Florham Park soon followed, leaving Chatham Township at its present geographic size, as of the year 1900. Chatham Township is located in the southern portion of Morris County and encompasses approximately 9.4 square miles. Approximately 35% of the Township consists of protected open space and recreations areas, including the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, Loantaka County Park, and Passaic River Park. The remaining land within the Township consists mainly of residential uses with a small portion zoned for commercial use. The Township zoning designations are shown on Map 4M. The Census Bureau population count for Chatham Township was 10,452 in 2010. The Township has experienced a population growth of 3.6% since 2000. Following are some important considerations for this municipality with respect to wastewater management planning:
Chatham Township is considered a non-urban municipality.
The municipality is not located within the Highlands Region.
Existing Infrastructure
The existing wastewater collection and conveyance infrastructure within this municipality consists of the following:
Collection System – Chatham Township is developed along the southern and eastern portions of the Township. The collection system and associated trunk sewers convey flow from these populated areas primarily to the Chatham Main WPCP.
Pumping Stations – There are a total of three existing pumping stations in the Township. Two are located in the southwest portion of the Township along the Passaic River. The third pumping station is located in the eastern portion of the Township. A forth pumping station will be created when Chatham Glen (Chatham Township WPCP #2) gets converted to a pump station. The existing major wastewater treatment facilities located within the municipality include:
Chatham Township WPCP #1 (Chatham Main) – this is the wastewater treatment facility serving a majority of the Township. The plants outfall is going to be

relocated to a new location in the main stem of the Passaic River near the current Chatham Glen outfall. The proposed discharge point will be downstream from the location where the Black Brook enters the Passaic River.
Chatham Township WPCP #2 (Chatham Glen) - Chatham Township has indicated they plan to close this facility and convert it to a pumping station. Flow from this future pumping station will be directed to the Chatham Main facility. (see Significant Actions) Tables 1a and 1b below include additional minor facilities in Chatham Township regulated through NJDEP that have individual New Jersey Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NJPDES) discharge permits. Table 1a shows facilities indicated as discharge to groundwater (DGW) and Table 1b shows facilities indicated as discharge to surface water (DSW). The existing treatment facilities are illustrated on Map 2M.
