BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The township has set up a charging and water station for residents who are still without power.

The station is at the municipal complex, at 100 Commons Way. The tented charging station and water station is available so residents can charge critical devices, and for residents who have well water, there is a hose that residents can use to fill personal containers.

The Bridgewater Township Library, on Vogt Drive, has also set up additional power strips to accommodate device charging.
