They are responsible to provide for the health and well-being of the residents of Bernards Township and its contractual municipalities by providing State-mandated services as described below.

Preserve and protect the quality of surface and groundwater supplies through the enforcement of state and local codes for septic systems and wells by:

  • reviewing proposed designs for new septic systems, alterations, and repairs,
  • inspecting the installation and abandonment of septic systems and wells, and

Inspect any public health complaints such as garbage, vermin, mosquito harborage, and septic system malfunctions.
