Central Region Treatment Plants Temporary Changed Treatment during Tropical Depression Ida
CAMDEN, NJ - SEPT. 9, 2021 –On September 13, New Jersey American Water will resume using chloramines in water treatment at its Raritan-Millstone and Canal Road Water Treatment plants. These plants serve New Jersey American Water customers in the following counties: Essex, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Morris, Somerset and Union.
