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.

Concerns about Arsenic in Tap Water?

Posted on September 22, 2017 at 9:29 AM

Recent media attention has brought to light concerns regarding potential negative health effects from drinking water containing Arsenic. The HMUA takes potential impacts to public health very seriously and works to ensure that its water is in compliance with all Federal and State standards. In NJ, the maximum allowable contaminant level for Arsenic is 0.005 milligrams per liter (mg/l) or 5 parts per billion (ppb).  The USEPA’s legal limit for Arsenic is 10 ppb.  The Federal and NJ State Primary and Secondary Drinking Water Standards are provided on the NJDEP website at: http://www.state.nj.us/dep/watersupply/pdf/dw_standards_2_2005.pdf Read More...
