The state’s wastewater system is in dire need of upgrades and the degaester is the key to achieving that, according to a new report by the Institute for Water and Environment at Rutgers University.
The degaiser is a device used to remove pollutants from wastewater that can cause algae blooms.
When it is used in New Jersey, the degaser has been used to clean up the state’s drinking water supply since 2007.
In the past, degaesters have had problems with leaks and poor quality, which resulted in a drop in the state average quality of water, according the report.
The new report, titled “Delaying degasifiers: New Jersey is missing out on a critical water resource,” details how the state has not implemented a degaifier since 2007 and that the state needs to address that problem.
The report finds that the degatger can only remove about 5% of the pollutants from the system.
The rest of the contaminants are carried into the system through the septic system.
But the degaseers cost $30 million to install, and the total cost is $3.6 billion, the report says.
The state has invested nearly $100 million to fix the degachger, according a press release from the Institute.
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection estimates that the cost of installing and maintaining the degachaiser is $1.3 billion.
New Jersey already has one degaaser on the state system, and another is in place in the county, the Institute said.
The plan is to have the degaeras installed by 2020, but state officials have said they expect to see a new degailer installed every two years until 2035.
The degaeder was developed by Duke Energy to remove some of the pollution from the septum of wastewater from residential, industrial and commercial wastewater treatment plants.
Duke plans to build two degaeters on the New Jersey coast to replace the ones that have been on the coast for about five years.
The State Department of Environment and Environmental Protection said in a statement that “it is critical that the DEEP implement a comprehensive plan to reduce the impact of degasers on New Jersey waterways and the state population.”
The DEEP said in the release that “there are some important steps that need to be taken to mitigate degaser impacts to the coastal waterways.”
The Department of Conservation and Recreation, the state agency that manages the New Brunswick Aqueduct, said in its own statement that it is “aware of the report and will work to identify solutions that will support New Jersey residents and businesses in their efforts to reduce their environmental impact.”
