Sea Bright Among 6 Towns Claiming Residents Overpaid for Sewer

Officials claim residents were overbilled between 2006 and 2009 by the Two Rivers Water Reclamation Authority and paid more than Little Silver or Oceanport residents.

Sea Bright is among the six municipalities suing the Two Rivers Water Reclamation Authority (TRWRA), charging the utility overbilled, and in some instances double-billed, its residents, according to a report on APP.com.

The suit, filed in December by Red Bank, Rumson, Eatontown, Sea Bright, Shrewsbury Township and Tinton Falls, alleges that TRWRA charged residents higher rates than other participating towns, amounting to an estimated $4.31 million in overbilling between the 2006 and 2009 fiscal years, the article states.

Fair Haven, Little Silver, Monmouth Beach, Oceanport, Shrewsbury Borough and West Long Branch founded the authority in 1965 and are considered "member towns." The municipalities involved in the suit, which the TRWRA has countered, are considered "customer towns."
