UNION COUNTY, NJ -  Area health departments are notifying residents that New Jersey American Water will change the water treatment process at its Raritan-Millstone Water Treatment Plant in Bridgewater and at its Canal Road Water Treatment Plant in Somerset.

The change was scheduled to start this week and will last through the end of April for Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Morris, Somerset and Union counties. During this period, customers may notice an increase in the taste and smell of chlorine in their water. This is normal and will only be temporary until the system maintenance is complete. 

The purpose of this treatment is to change from chloramines (a combination of ammonia and chlorine) to free chlorine. This temporary treatment is done annually as routine maintenance to ensure high quality, reliable water service throughout New Jersey American Water’s distribution system.
