PLEASE FLUSH WISELY!

Posted on April 14, 2020 at 3:37 PM

Please do not flush "flushable" wipes, paper towels and sanitizing (baby, Clorox/Lysol) wipes. If flushed, they will usually not clog the toilet, but these wipes often cause problems for sewer operations downstream.

TIER 3 PUBLIC NOTIFICATION

Posted on August 30, 2019 at 1:10 PM

HMUA received a Notice of Non-Compliance from the NJDEP on April 11, 2018 for failure to collect a set of ground water source samples for each positive total coliform result, two (2) total, in the distribution system on March 13, 2018.  Pursuant to the Revised Total Coliform Rule, ground water source samples are required for each positive total coliform result.  HMUA collected one (1) set of ground water source samples for all wells operating at the time of the positive total coliform result, and all samples came back negative for total coliform.  Per the rule, two (2) sets of ground water source samples were required to be taken.  A second set of ground water source samples was taken on June 27, 2019 with all results negative for total coliform. The second set of ground water source samples corrected the non-compliance. This does not pose a threat to the quality of our water supply, as the water is continually disinfected at each source.
