You are also required to complete an application for the Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority (CCMUA). These applications are available through CCMUA.  After completing the application for connection for Winslow Township, you must take your copies (yellow and pink) with your payment receipt and your application for CCMUA to the Camden County Municipal Utility Authority, 1645 Ferry Avenue Camden, NJ 08104 for further processing.

When your application is reviewed and approved by CCMUA, you will receive notification via mail from CCMUA  with instructions to apply for your permit with the Winslow Township Construction Department. When you receive your permit, your registered plumber may begin connection to our sewer main. 

Quarterly billing for sewer will begin once connection is made by your plumber and the Township's plumbing inspector approves the connection.
