The Pequannock, Lincoln Park and Fairfield Sewerage Authority is also known as the "Two Bridges Sewerage Authority" or "TBSA". Located in Lincoln Park, New Jersey, TBSA has been in operation since 1979. The need for this plant came about as the region grew from a sparsely settled rural community into vital suburban communities with increasing populations. As the area grew, it became apparent that there was a need for an adequate sewerage system within the boundaries of Fairfield, Lincoln Park and Pequannock to help resolve severe local septic problems and to replace other smaller, less capable treatment plants.
The Two Bridges Regional Wastewater System serves a 56 square mile area with a current population of approximately 40,000 residents. The TBSA transmission system consists of 14 miles of interceptor sewers, 7 miles of force mains, 5 remote pumping stations and a wastewater treatment facility with an effluent outfall discharging into the Pompton River just upstream of its confluence with the Passaic River.
