UNION BEACH, N.J. (AP) - A project to rebuild a sewage plant flooded by Superstorm Sandy is underway in Union Beach.

The Bayshore Regional Sewerage Authority has launched a $28 million project to rebuild its plant that was damaged in the October 2012 storm.

The project will provide additional protection to the plant’s main incinerator, pump stations and other buildings.

The plant handles an average of eight million gallons of wastewater per day from eight municipalities near the Raritan Bay.

Sandy caused many critical buildings to flood, including those with underground system components.

Many of those components required immediate repair and replacement to prevent an overflow of sewage.

The work should be done by September 2016.
