Please conserve water!

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) has just placed the entire state on a Drought Watch. This is not yet an emergency, but the state is urging the public to conserve water. If conditions do not improve, the state may declare a Drought Warning or Drought Emergency which will require mandatory water restrictions. You may read more about the Drought Watch here.

Please limit your lawn watering and washing of vehicles, and cut back on other non-essential uses of water such as power washing homes and walks. Every Drop matters!

As a reminder, the Borough already has water restrictions in place to ensure that we can serve all residents with our allocation from the aquifer.

Watering time limits:   

4:00 am to 9:00 am, and 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Date limits: 

Odd numbered houses are permitted to water on odd numbered days.

Even numbered houses are permitted to water on even numbered days.

Outside watering is NOT permitted on the 31st of any month.
