American Water Contract Services Group proudly partners with the City of Camden to provide water and wastewater services to the community.

The City of Camden’s water supply, serviced by American Water Contract Services Group, comes from groundwater that is treated at two facilities prior to delivery to the distribution system. The treatment facilities, Morris-Delair Water Treatment Plant located in Pennsauken and Parkside Water Treatment Plant located in Camden, collectively treat more than 21 million gallons per day. The two water treatment plants provide safe, clean, and reliable water to approximately 46,000 residents in the Camden community.

Lead Service Line Information

At American Water, providing safe, reliable water service is our top priority. In July 2021, the state of New Jersey enacted legislation for all water providers to share with customers the material of the utility-owned service lines leading to their properties and the material of the customer-owned service lines leading to their properties, if known. It also requires utility companies to replace utility-owned and customer-owned lead service lines within the next ten years.

Please note if your service lines contain lead, it does not mean you cannot use water as you normally do. Your water continues to meet water quality standards. The company regularly tests for lead in drinking water and our water meets state and federal water quality regulations, including those set for lead. For added protection and to comply with the new legislation, we will be removing lead and lead/galvanized piping from service lines over time.
