New Jersey American Water acquired the water system in 2007, followed by the wastewater system in 2019, improving water quality and service reliability, and providing the municipality with financial flexibility and reduced risk.
Haddonfield Partnership with New Jersey American Water
We have had the opportunity to work with communities of all sizes, all over the state. Here are just a few recent testimonials from community officials we have worked with.
Michael “Traz” Tovinsky, Mayor, Mt. Ephraim Borough –“Selling our systems to New Jersey American Water eliminated a lot of risk for our small community. They are the experts on water and sewer and have been able to provide us with quality service at reasonable rates for many years. We know we’re in good hands with New Jersey American Water.” Water System Acquired in 2007, Wastewater Systems Acquired in 2019
John Moscatelli, Borough Commissioner, Haddonfield Borough –“…selling that system to a qualified, private operator who does this all the time, who has vast resources that they can devote to your system is long-term going to be a much safer bet.” Water and Wastewater Systems Acquired in 2015
Matt Dorsi, Mayor, Long Hill Township –“This sale will wipe out any and all debt that the town has, plus leave us with a surplus for about $1.3 million for the next few years that would have been used for debt service and other things.” Wastewater Systems Acquired in 2020
New Jersey Partnerships

Jamel Holley, Director of Public Works, Irvington Township –“I always know and have the comfort level that when I pick up the phone to call American Water, I’m going to get an answer back and that allows me to perform my job better as a Director in this Administration.” Township’s water provider
