January 4, 2021

EAST WINDSOR, NJ (MERCER)–Mayor Janice S. Mironov, along with Council Members Alan Rosenberg and John Zoller, joined East Windsor Municipal Utilities Authority Executive Director Richard Brand and Chairperson Linda Moore, EWMUA Board Members and representatives of Solar Landscape, to cut the ribbon and to power on the recently completed solar array project at the EWMUA Wastewater Treatment Plant on Millstone Road. 

Mayor Mironov explained, “East Windsor Township has been dedicated in our commitment to environmental sustainability and we have been pro-active in seeking opportunities that allow us to increase our renewable resources and become more energy efficient.  This project, completed at no cost to our taxpayers and resulting in an almost $2.5 million cost savings over the 15 year term of the Agreement, is a prime example of ‘going green and saving green.’”

East Windsor Municipal Utilities Authority Executive Director Richard Brand added, “This additional step toward sustainability helps keep rates down while reducing the East Windsor MUA carbon footprint by 2.5 million pounds a year.”

The 1.66 megawatt solar array, completed and maintained by Solar Landscape, at no Township cost, was installed on 6.5 acres of the total 130 acre Township East Windsor Municipal Utility Authority property on the south side of Millstone Road, to power the site’s Wastewater Treatment Plant.  The solar panel system is designed to offset nearly 100% of the East Windsor Municipal Utilities Authority Wastewater Treatment Plant’s energy use, resulting in a savings to the Township of over $2.5 million over the 15 year term of the agreement.

Striped Bass Anglers Required To Use Non-Offset Circle Hooks When Fishing With Natural Bait

January 4, 2021

TRENTON, NJ (MERCER)–Striped bass anglers: Effective January 1, 2021, anglers are required to use non-offset (inline) circle hooks when fishing for striped bass with natural bait. A ‘circle hook’ is defined as a non-offset (inline) hook where the point is curved perpendicularly back towards the shank. The term ‘non-offset or inline’ means the point and barb are in the same plane as the shank. All states are required to implement the circle hook requirement by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission’s Atlantic Striped Bass Fishery Management Plan. The new requirement is intended to reduce mortality in fish that are caught and released, known as release mortality. Release mortality contributes significantly to overall fishing mortality in the recreational striped bass fishery.
