WALLINGTON, N.J. -- The Town of Wallington has been ordered to replace 80 storm drain covers at a cost of $35,000 by the Department of Environmental Protection, according to NorthJersey.com.

The covers are an older design that were not replaced when the roads were paved by PSE&G, which says it is not responsible for replacing them, according to NorthJersey.com. Roads paved by the town received new covers as required by state regulations, said NorthJersey.com.

The newer storm drain covers are designed not to allow objects to fall into the sewers below and are safer for people riding bicycles, added NorthJersey.com.
