These treatment facilities, producing upwards of 11.5 million gallons per day of PFOA and PFOS free water, will be located in Wyckoff, Midland Park and Glen Rock. A total of 10.4 miles of raw water main will be constructed to connect offsite wells to each treatment facility, raising the total amount of wells treated at all four facilities to thirty three.

“According to the latest mailing, “Ridgewood Water has been aware of PFOA and PFOS detections and has sought to educate our customers for years…” So shame on me that I finally realized that we have been paying to be poisoned.

With Careful Maintenance, Your Well Water Can Be Safe For Consumption
The water in your well can be contaminated in two ways. Either it could have impurities, bacterial growth, or rodent infestation, or the pipes may be dirty. In both cases, when it reaches your tap, it is not safe to consume anymore. If you have a private water well at home, then it is your responsibility to make sure the water is clean and pure.

Ridgewood NJ, Governor Phil Murphy today reaffirmed his commitment to address lead exposure in New Jersey and its harmful effects on public health and child development by signing a package of bills aimed protecting New Jersey’s families from lead poisoning. The legislation, which will require regular inspections for, and the remediation of, lead-based paint hazards in residential rental properties and require the inventory, replacement, and financing of lead service lines throughout the state within the next 10 years, will advance New Jersey as a national leader in lead poisoning prevention. In October 2019, Governor Murphy unveiled a comprehensive statewide plan to address lead exposure in New Jersey, in which exposure to lead-based paint and lead in drinking water were two key elements of the strategy.
