The annual water quality report details the quality of water supplied by New Jersey American Water to customers in 2017 against the compliance standards established by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJ DEP). It describes local drinking water sources, testing conducted on the water, substances detected, and the levels of those substances. Commonly asked questions and answers concerning local drinking water are also included.
“We are pleased to report that the drinking water we supplied to our customers is once again of higher quality than required by state and federal drinking water agencies. Our teams of water quality, plant operations, and water distribution professionals work hard to ensure the highest quality water and service to our customers in the 191 municipalities we serve, and the dozens of additional communities who purchase water from us across the state,” said Anthony Matarazzo, senior director of Water Quality and Environmental Management, New Jersey American Water. “These annual results are a testament to our employees’ dedication to excellence, and we encourage our customers to read the information provided in these reports.”
By providing two easy ways for customers to receive confirmation that their drinking water meets all federal standards for water quality, the company is also working to increase the public’s understanding of the value of water.
“We know that an educated customer is one who will place a higher value on this precious resource and who will have a greater tendency to do his or her part in protecting it. We’re proud to share these reports with the public in order to encourage greater awareness, appreciation and conservation.”
