The New Jersey State Senate has confirmed Governor Chris Christie’s appointment of attorney David S. Catuogno as a Commissioner of the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission. For over a century the PVSC has protected the environmental health of 1.4 million residents in the 48 municipalities of Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Union and Passaic Counties of the Passaic Valley Service District.
“We are honored that Governor Christie has selected a member of our firm to serve as a Commissioner of the PVSC. We are confident that David will prove to be an invaluable addition to the Commission,” said Charles M. Forman, Managing Member of Forman Holt Eliades & Youngman.
The Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission (PVSC), established in 1902 by an Act of New Jersey State Legislature, began operation of the Newark Bay Treatment Plant in 1924 as a means to alleviate pollution in the Passaic River and its tributaries. Major expansions, upgrades and renovations throughout the twentieth century have made the PVSC one of the largest wastewater treatment plants in the United States.
