SPRINGFIELD, NJ - After passing an ordinance regulating developer contributions to the purchase of flow rights, the town also passed a companion resolution at Tuesday's meeting setting the price point for those purchases.

The township was required by the ordinance to establish a rate for the purchase of sewer flow rights. The committee settled on a rate similar to the one used for the purchase of flow rights from Garwood. As a result, developers will now be asked to pay $1.45 per gallon per day of flow rights.

The Resolution will take effect on July 1 of this year, and will remain in effect until June 30, 2020, or until the township committee adopts a new rate.
