Borough of Buena MUA Water TowerBorough of Buena, Municipal Utilities Authority


The Buena MUA plant.The Borough of Buena Municipal Utilities Authority is located in the most western part of Atlantic County, New Jersey which is comprised of 7.9 square miles.   

The BBMUA was created as a political subdivision of the State of New Jersey by Ordinance of the Borough of Buena on December 23, 1963.  The Authority was created to install, construct, finance and maintain the operations of a sewerage system in the Borough of Buena.  The Authority’s sewer treatment plant was fully operational in July 1969. 

Later in the early 1980’s the Authority received a grant from the NJDEP along with other funding which helped to finance a water supply system for the Borough of Buena.  On September 20, 1985 the Authority began providing water service to the area. 

Currently the BBMUA has four sewer pump stations and three water wells with the addition of a pump station and the possibility of another well being added in the future.  These pump stations and wells allow the BBMUA to service portions of Minotola, Landisville, and Buena as well as a small part of Buena Vista Township with sewer and/or water services totaling 1238 sewer accounts and 1481 water accounts.

The Borough of Buena Municipal Utilities Authority’s mission is to provide the best service to our water and sewer customers in a cost-effective manner while protecting the environment.  We are utilizing the most up to date treatment methods to attain the limits set upon us by the NJDEP and The Pinelands Commission.
