RIDGEWOOD, N.J. — Ridgewood Water is holding two forums on its 2016 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report, according to Village Manager Roberta Sonenfeld.
The first is to take place 9 a.m. July 27 in the courtroom at Village Hall and the second at 7 p.m. Aug. 2 in the youth center at Village Hall.
“We would like to have an opportunity to explain this report to you as well as to answer any of your questions regarding Ridgewood Water,” Sonenfeld said in an emailed notice to consumers.
Residents from all the municipalities served by Ridgewood Water – Glen Rock, Midland Park, Wyckoff, and Ridgewood – are invited to intend.
Ridgewood Water also issues two corrections to the report .
Of interest is a typo erroneously referencing 2015 as the year the utility exceeded the 15 parts per billion action level for lead. The corrections note that lead levels were exceeded in 2012 and that a plan approved by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to remediate the situation already has been implemented.
The forums will comprise a presentation on the quality report, also known as the Consumer Confidence Report, as well as a question-and-answer period, according to Ridgewood Water Business Manager Dave Scheibner.
Because space is limited, registration is necessary. Register by contacting Donna Omelianuk at 201-670-5500 x271 or email@example.com.
Recordings of the forums also will be made available on the village website, www.ridgewoodnj.net.
Ridgewood Water is a public utility that uses 51 wells distributed throughout the towns it serves, according to the annual water quality report.
Additionally, it buys water from SUEZ – North America, formerly United Water – and, during peak demand times in summer, the Hawthorne Water Department.
