MUA Washington Township, NJ

Safe Drinking Water Hotline 800-426-4791

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population.

Those with compromised immune systems such as those with cancer and undergoing chemotherapy, those who have undergone organ transplants, those with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly and infants may be particularly at risk from infections.

These individuals should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline.

The WTMUA will not suspend water services due to non-payment until the outbreak of COVID-19 has subsided.

The Raritan Is Losing Water At A Dangerous Rate And Is Vulnerable To Saltwater Intrusion

Most of the WTMUA's wells draw water from the Raritan and it is this aquifer that is in trouble. Water is being removed from this aquifer faster than it can be replaced. In a balanced system, water from rain would percolate down through the ground recharging the aquifer at the same speed.
