Drinking Water Clarification
Release Date: September 22, 2016

Thursday, September 22, 2016
 
 
 
Media reports in recent days have raised questions regarding the quality of drinking water throughout the State of New Jersey.
 
The Township's drinking water currently meets all federal and state standards with respect to Hexavalent Chromium in our water. 
 
New Jersey uses the Federal Standard of 100 parts per billion (ppb).
 
The average level in Mahwah’s drinking water (as reported in the Record) was 0.21 ppb.
 
The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) requires the EPA to determine the level of contaminants in drinking water at which no adverse health effects are likely to occur. 
 
The EPA sets enforceable standards for drinking water contaminants based on the best available science to prevent potential health problems.
 
We continually monitor the water quality in the Township of Mahwah and report our findings to the DEP and EPA.
 
Should you need any further information, please contact Paul Sherer, Superintendent of Water Department, 201-529-3344
 
                                                Sincerely,
 
 
 
                                                Mayor Bill Laforet
