The Authority shall, within the territorial boundaries of the municipalities and the Town of West New York, have and may exercise all of the powers provided for in the Sewerage Authorities Law, together with any other powers which may hereafter be conferred upon Sewerage Authorities by law, and by any other statute pertinent to a sewerage authority or sewerage utility.
