FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, NJ - If you think your water has traces of lead or copper, you can have it tested by the Water Department at no cost to you. 

The Franklin Township Water Department is looking for water customers who are willing to take part in the township’s "Lead and Copper Sampling Plan," according to a statement. 

The samples are being collected to determine the lead and copper levels in your tap water.

This sampling effort is required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection under the Federal and State Safe Drinking Water Acts and is being accomplished through collaboration between the public water system and their consumers (e.g. residents).  

These samples help assess the need for, or the effectiveness of, corrosion control treatment to minimize a customer’s exposure to lead and/or copper through drinking water. Results from this monitoring effort and information about lead will be provided to you.

The customer will be required to fill a one (1) liter bottle with tap water which will be dropped off and picked up by the Township.

If you are interested in being considered as part of the sampling plan, please complete the survey on your property and send it to the Water Department.
