Water Department General System Description

Pequannock Township provides its customers with high quality water that meets or exceeds all Federal and State primary drinking water standards. The primary source of water for the Township is groundwater from the Buried Valley Aquifer, which is obtained from three wells located in the northern section of the Township. The water system is currently supplemented during high demand periods with finish water from two interconnections with the City of Newark's water transmission aqueduct that runs through the Township.

The Township operates three wells located in its northern section. The total annual production is about 650 MG. Two interconnections, one at Hopper Avenue and one at Jefferson Street, supplement the groundwater source with surface water (10.27% of yearly totals). The Township water distribution system includes 320,000 linear feet of distribution mains. The water distribution system includes 1.0 MG of backup storage at the Greenview Tank, which is a pumped storage system.

Water testing samples are collected by the Health Department and tested at a certified lab. All test results are kept on file in the Health Department along with copies of test sites and dates.

The water provided by the Township meets all primary water standards. however, it exceeds the secondary standard Recommended Upper Limit (RUL) for both hardness and sodium. The Township is currently exploring measures to lower the levels of hardness and sodium in the drinking water.

The Township currently has contracts to sell water to the Borough of Lincoln Park and the Borough of Riverdale (in smaller quantities). In addition to purchasing water from the City of Newark during high demand periods, the Township also has a contract to buy water from Riverdale.
