Letter to the Editor: To the Customers of Trenton Water Works in Hopewell Township

To the Customers of Trenton Water Works in Hopewell Township,

I would like to assure you that all members of the Hopewell Township Committee are concerned about the reports involving Trenton Water Works.

Our municipal staff is in communication with the City of Trenton about water quality and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection regarding its oversight of Trenton Water Works.

The Township is committed to providing residents with timely and accurate information as quickly as we receive it so that you can act appropriately should any water advisory be issued.

In addition, we are reaching out to Catherine McCabe, the new Commissioner at the NJ DEP, and seeking help to resolve the ongoing issues with Trenton Water Works to ensure the health and safety of our constituents.  We have also contacted the City of Trenton’s Public Works about how they can provide more information to their customers in Hopewell Township.  We will request that Trenton Water Works test their water in Hopewell Township.  This testing will help ensure that our water is safe and provide reassurance now and in the future.

The Hopewell Township Committee will continue to advocate for the residents of Hopewell Township as we move forward.

Hopewell Township will keep you informed as we pursue answers and results. I would like to encourage you to visit the Township website (www.hopewelltwp.org) and follow us on Facebook (@HopewellTownshipNJ) so that you receive timely and important information on this issue and others that affect our community.

Julie Blake

Deputy Mayor, Hopewell Township

    • Yes, I have spoken with Merkle Cherry, the head of Public Works in Trenton. There will be regular meetings between Trenton and the mayors of the affected municipalities.
      Trenton Water Works will be giving a *public* presentation to the Trenton City Council (City Hall East 319 State Street) at 5:30 pm on Thursday, February 1st. I invite you (and other Hopewell residents) to join me there to listen and ask questions.
      Please keep in mind, each municipality has its own concerns and relationship with Trenton Water Works, so while we will certainly be sharing information, our responses may be different.
