The Murphy Administration invested $386 Million in Water Infrastructure, creating more than 4,600 construction jobs.

Infrastructure projects are supported by zero-interest NJDEP loans and NJ Infrastructure Bank sale of $122.5 Million in Green Bonds.

Governor Murphy’s continuing commitment to infrastructure investments enhance public health, protect the environment, and create green jobs. The NJ Infrastructure Bank (I-Bank) working in partnership with the NJDEP sold $122.5 million of AAA/Aaa rated Environmental Infrastructure Bonds, Acting DEP Commissioner Shawn LaTourette and I-Bank Chair Robert Briant, Jr. announced today.

“As New Jersey recovers from the pandemic, we must seize the opportunity to create family-sustaining green jobs that put our residents back to work building the critical water infrastructure that our state needs to protect our environment and public health,” Acting DEP Commissioner Shawn LaTourette said. “Through the DEP’s incredible partnership with the I-Bank, we combine forces to create the New Jersey Water Bank, which offers innovative and affordable financing for water purveyors and local governments to make investments that promote the public good.”
