Ridgewood NJ, Ridgewood Water has announced a public Zoom meeting scheduled for next week after a letter went out in late August regarding contaminants and the long term effects that can afflict those who drink its tap water.
Ridgewood Water is planning to host two virtual information events specifically regarding PFOA/PFAS in the coming weeks. Please check the Ridgewood Water website for updates and scheduling. If you have questions, please contact the Ridgewood Water Treatment Division at (201) 670-5526 or Customer Service at (201) 670-5520.
The meetings are scheduled for September 28 at 6 p.m. and October 5 at noon. Links for the meetings can be found HERE. Residents are encouraged to participate and ask questions.
Ridgewood Water is a public water supply utility serving four municipalities in Bergen County, NJ: the Borough of Glen Rock, Borough of Midland Park, Township of Wyckoff and Village of Ridgewood. The utility is governed by the Ridgewood Village Council and managed by the Ridgewood Village Manager.
All customers in Ridgewood Water’s service area should have received or will be receiving shortly, a non-emergency notice about the levels of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in the drinking water supply lines.
For the past few years, Ridgewood Water has sought to educate our customers about the presence of Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), a class of contaminants to which the compound PFOA belongs. Please visit the PFAS Resources page under the Resources menu on the Ridgewood Water website for additional information. https://water.ridgewoodnj.net/pfas-resources/
