Riverside, once called “Progress,” certainly strives to live up to its original name.
Over the past several years, Riverside has begun to revitalize and reinvent itself, focused on molding its Downtown and surrounding redevelopment areas into a vibrant hub of shopping, dining, living and leisure.

Riverside is a small, transit-oriented community situated between the Route 130 Corridor and the Rancocas Creek. It is a “Riverfront” community in the truest sense, as it located on the River and the New Jersey Transit River LINE. Riverside is just 20 minutes from Philadelphia, 30 minutes from Trenton and 1 hour and 30 minutes from New York City.

Riverside’s redevelopment has been, and will continue to be, focused in four main areas, which consist of the Downtown Central Business District, the Golden Triangle Watchcase Site, the Golden Triangle Zurbrugg Hospital Site, and the Taubels Mill Site. The Downtown Central Business District is a true, walkable downtown with a mix of apartments over first floor commercial establishments. Several properties are undergoing renovation, bringing both new life and new blood to this already spectacular Downtown. The three remaining sites will see predominantly residential development with design concept and preliminary site plans underway from each of the respective developers.

Our Township provides endless opportunities for all who wish to live and work along the Riverfront. We have made significant strides in redevelopment with several more great strides to come and are proud to welcome new businesses and residents to our community. Come see for yourself!

The Riverside Water Reclamation Authority was created on July 26, 1967 by the Township Committee of the Township of Riverside under Ordinance 1967-13.

Riverside’s commitment to our residents includes maintaining a top-notch sewer system.  Riverside constructed its first sewer system almost 100 years ago. At the time, it cost $80,000 and served some 3,500 residents. It was state-of-the-art for 1908-1909 with about 15 miles of trunk sewers, four digestion tanks, four settling beds, four stone settling beds and 275 manholes.

As the population and number of businesses grew, so did the need for upgrades. In 1941, engineers completed plans for a new treatment plant, but the U.S. Government put such construction on hold until after World War II.

In 1947, the Riverside Sewerage Authority held its first meeting. Two years later, the township started paying Authority members.

After adding approximately 35,000 feet of extensions, trunk lines and equipment, the Authority dedicated a new modern plant in 1957. The plant served the community well for more than two decades until new regulations required further upgrades.
