  1. So we are in a water emergency in a year when rainfall is at least 25% ABOVE average according to NOAA.

    Someone explain this to me like I’m 7 year old.

    1. Grow up

    2. If excessive usage the storage tanks are unable to supply water as fast as it is being used. No one wants the tanks in their neighborhood which causes “fixing” the problem very difficult..

      Has nothing to do with the amount of rain year to date, this week is the first time watering of lawn was really needed, and is seems people took the sprinklers in their own hands causing the emergency (or Sir Calbi anticipated unusually high consumption so called the emergency)

      1. tanks can be buried in the higher elevations

  2. A recurring theme at Ridgewood Water. No other water company in New Jersey is so inept.

    1. The new office space looks nice!

  3. When are they going to get their act together?

  4. Bozo the Clown in charge.

  5. The true definition of a Mickey Mouse operation/Ridgewood Water does it again!

  6. First they came for the blowers … well, they can pry my sprinklers from my cold dead hands!

  7. This is a continuing, long-term problem/issue that urgently needs a solution. It needs to be fixed.

    What we don’t need is a new Schedler ball field, or ownership of an obsolete auto repair garage, and all the nonsense associated with them.

    This Village needs to have its priorities set, and this is one of them.

    For a class A village to have a water emergency the FIRST hot day of the year is embarrassing and unnecessary.

    1. obsolete auto repair garage,

      Was historically garage alley where cars were fixed dropped off in
      Morninngs then commuters took
      Train to city then picked up repaired car
      that evening one car per family

  8. So we can only water our lawns 2x a week and now not at all.

    Reduce my taxes

  9. All of these disasters being faced by the incumbents will make this year‘s municipal election season very interesting to say the least!

  10. Maybe 100’s of apartments should not have been built in town.

  11. Pound sand

  12. Hmm Army Core of Engineers talking about floods last night, today pls conserve water.

  13. Convert all lawns to turf!

  14. The Ridgewood Water Department is an absolute JOKE of an operation!

    This is the same department that asks its customers to literally have a smart irrigation controller recertified EVERY YEAR! What on earth does this actually accomplish?!?

    At least they no longer ask us to have the recertification form notarized by a notary public!

    Which employee came up with this process? Fire this person immediately and get them off the taxpayers’ dime!

  15. What a disgrace

  16. Artificial turf fields are the top priority.
