LIVINGSTON, NJ – The Township of Livingston announced this week that its 2019 Water Quality Report, which is designed to inform residents about the quality water and services that the township delivers to them every day, is now available online and in hard copy.
According to Junior Utility Engineer Nathan Kiracofe, who encourages all residents to read the report, postcards have been mailed to all residents informing them that the report is available online HERE or in hard copy at Livingston Town Hall (357 S. Livingston Avenue), the Livingston Senior and Community Center (204 Hillside Avenue) and the Livingston Public Library (10 Robert H. Harp Drive).
The Livingston Water Department livingstonnj.org/Water states in the report that its constant goal is to provide Livingston residents with “a safe and dependable supply of drinking water.”
“We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources,” the water department writes.
In addition to producing water from its own 14 production wells, the township also purchases water from New Jersey American Water (NJAW). Both entities routinely monitor for contaminants in Livingston’s drinking water according to federal and state laws, as the Environmental Protection Agency requires monitoring for more than 80 drinking water contaminants.
The tables shown in Livingston’s 2019 Water Quality Report display the results of that monitoring for the period of Jan 1 to Dec. 31, 2018. Any contaminants listed in those tables are the only contaminants detected in Livingston’s water supply, according to the Livingston Water Department.
