FAIR LAWN, NJ – The Borough Council introduced an ordinance to make $2.67 million worth of improvements to the water system.

On March 20, the council voted unanimously to bond the funds over 15 years for “various improvements to the water supply and distribution system,” according to language in the ordinance.

The improvements will include well and pump station rehabilitation, well house and pump station building improvements, sewer and monitoring system upgrades and water treatment of wells.

The ordinance includes the purchase of a sport utility vehicle, as well, bonded for five years at a cost of $51,000.

Also included is the water meter replacement program at a cost of $1,628,000, bonded over 15 years.

The council has been discussing contaminants in the borough water supply for years and has closed several wells “out of an abundance of caution,” according to borough officials. NJ Department of Environmental Protection standards have caused the borough to invest more heavily in reducing contaminants that exceed the new levels announced in the past several months.

The public hearing and possible final adoption of the ordinance is scheduled for April 17.
