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...

STORAGE SYSTEM UPGRADES IN PROGRESS

Posted on March 31, 2017 at 11:15 AM

The HMUA is currently working on a water storage system upgrade project. The project will temporarily increase pressures in the system and cause fluctuations in water pressures at the tap for the duration of the project. This pressure increase may also cause some water main breaks in weaker areas of the system, requiring emergency shutdown of the water main in your area for repairs. Please understand that we are making every effort to avoid any service interruption and will work diligently to reduce the duration of interruptions. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the summer. Read More...
