Green Initiatives

Adaptation for Climate Change

CCMUA is taking measures to address the impacts of global climate change that will directly impact our operations.

Camden Collaborative Initiative

The Camden Collaborative Initiative (CCI) is a solutions-oriented partnership between governmental, non-profit, private, and community-based agencies formed to plan and implement innovative strategies to improve the environment and the quality of life of Camden’s residents.

Energy Self-Sufficiency

CCMUA plans to produce as much energy through its operations as it consumes, resulting in zero net energy consumption by the year 2020.

Environmental Management System

An Environmental Management System (EMS) is a framework that helps an organization achieve its environmental goals through consistent review, evaluation, and improvement of its environmental performance. In 2010, the CCMUA became a National Biosolids Partnership (NPB) Certified Environmental Management System Agency in recognition of its commitment to environmental performance and community service.

Green Infrastructure: Camden SMART Initiative

The objective of the Camden SMART Initiative is to develop a comprehensive network of green infrastructure programs and projects for the City of Camden. The initiative includes neighborhood green and grey infrastructure projects, stormwater management policy development, and green infrastructure training programs.

Living Shoreline

Living shorelines consist of an array of new restoration tactics designed to stabilize coastal erosion and help adapt to sea level rise while also enhancing ecology, such as fish and wildlife habitat and water quality.

Water Conservation

As water is a rare and precious resource, when we conserve water, we are saving the planet for future generations. Saving water reduces the Authority’s capital costs, which helps keeps our user rate down. Using less water helps save money for you.
