Chatham in Line to Receive $100,000 Grant from State to Clean Up Passaic River

October 16, 2013 at 5:00 AM

CHATHAM, NJ - The Borough of Chatham and Chatham Township will be among the six towns applying for a state grant to "desnag" the Passaic River, according to Vince DeNave, borough engineer, at the council meeting held on Tuesday night.

"On Sept. 19, we received a letter from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, informing us that there will be a desnagging grant in the amount of $100,000 available," DeNave said.

Morris County and Union County will join to apply for the grant, representing six towns. The three from Union County are Summit, Berkeley Heights and New Providence. The three from Morris County are Chatham Borough, Chatham Township and Long Valley.

"We have plenty of areas we have identified previously, so we're in good shape in that regard," DeNave said. "We were told if we joined with Morris County and other towns, it would carry weight. So we're in a good position to get a grant."

Two ordinances were adopted unanimously by the Chatham Borough Council on Tuesday. Ordinance No. 13-18 dealing with "Hazardous Substances" gives the borough a mechanism by which it can recover expenses associated with an environment spill or accident that involves oil-based products.

The second ordinance No. 13-19 requires the owner of 51 Summit Avenue in Chatham to grant a "permananet drainage easment" on the property.
