Statute: 32:18-8

ARTICLE VII. 1. It is agreed between the signatory states that no sewage or other polluting matters shall be discharged or permitted to flow into, or be placed in, or permitted to fall or move into the tidal waters of the district, except under the following conditions and restrictions: (1) All sewage discharged or permitted to flow into class "A" waters of the district shall first have been so treated as-- a. to remove all floating solids and at least sixty per cent (60%) of the suspended solids; and b. to effect a reduction of organisms of the B. Coli group (intestinal bacilli) so that the probable number of such organisms shall not exceed one per cubic centimeter in more than fifty per cent (50%) of the samples of sewage effluent tested by the partially confirmed test; provided, however, that in the case of discharge into waters used primarily for bathing this bacterial standard need not be required except during the bathing season; and c. To effect a reduction in the oxygen demand of the sewage effluent sufficient to maintain an average dissolved oxygen content in the tidal waters of the district and in the general vicinity of the point of discharge of the sewage into those waters, at a depth of about five feet below the surface, of not less than fifty per cent (50%) saturation during any week of the year. (2) All sewage discharged or permitted to flow into class "B" waters of the district shall first have been so treated as-- a. to remove all floating solids and at least ten per cent (10%) of the suspended solids, or such additional percentage as may by reason of local conditions be necessary to avoid the formation of sludge deposits in the class "B" waters of the district; and b. to effect a reduction in the oxygen demand of the sewage effluent sufficient to maintain an average dissolved oxygen content in the tidal waters of the district and in the general vicinity of the point of discharge of the sewage into those waters, at a depth of about five feet below the surface, of not less than thirty per cent (30%) saturation during any week of the year.
