Concerns about Arsenic in Tap Water? September 22, 2017

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

Arsenic data from various points in HMUA’s water system, reported by the laboratory to NJDEP as required, is available on the NJDEP website at: https://www9.state.nj.us/DEP_WaterWatch_public/JSP/SingleResults.jsp?tinwsys=674&tsaanlyt=5&aname=ARSENIC

The HMUA’s laboratory testing results for Arsenic are consistently well within the USEPA and NJDEP standards, with the majority of the sample results being less than (<) what can be detected by the laboratory testing method.

 

STORAGE SYSTEM UPGRADES SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED July 27, 2017

We are pleased to announce that the HMUA has completed its water storage system upgrade project.  The project will improve overall system performance and reliability into the future.  We apologize for any inconvenience experienced by customers during the project due to temporarily increases or decreases in water pressure. 

We thank you for your patience as we work to improve your water service. Feel free to contact the HMUA Business Office at 908-852-3622 with any questions or if we can be of further service.

STORAGE SYSTEM UPGRADES IN PROGRESS March 31, 2017

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.

If you experience an unfortunate service interruption, when your water service is turned back on, you may experience some air in your lines or notice the water to be discolored. With some flushing of your plumbing fixtures, this discoloration should clear up. If this condition does not clear up, please contact our Business Office Day or Night and our personnel will respond.

Please be patient with us as we work to improve your water service. Feel free to contact the HMUA Business Office at 908-852-3622 with any questions or if we can be of further service.
