Vital Water Bonding Ordinances Going Up Before City Council

Would Approve Lead Line Replacements Among Other Projects

Trenton N.J. – Mayor W. Reed Gusciora’s Administration is putting up a plan for City Council approval to continue Trenton Water Works (TWW) efforts for lead service line replacement throughout Trenton and its service area. A separate Ordinance calls for bonding approval to 1) erect water tanks to replace water storage at our reservoir; 2). deployment of a systemwide program to modernize our metering and billing systems and; 3) and security, structural and treatment improvements at the Filtration Plant to improve water quality and system resiliency.

“In essence, we are trying to modernize how TWW delivers water to Trenton residents and our service customers,” said Gusciora. “Much of this has been years in the planning and mandated by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP).”

The mayor set the continuation of TWW’s lead service line replacement program their number one priority. Moreover, much of the work will be paid for by grants from the state.

“We want to deliver the cleanest deliverable product to our water consumers,” said Gusciora. “We have to make this investment so that generations to come will not have to worry about possible lead leaching into our water.”

The mayor also noted that NJDEP has a longstanding order for Trenton to either replace or cover the reservoir. More recently Homeland Security has advised municipal water authorities that it is unwise to store water in one place. The plan calls for TWW to erect storage tanks throughout the distribution area of service.

“We decided it was not cost-effective to cover the reservoir,” the mayor continued. “It is better in case of a catastrophic event that we could pull water from several sources rather than rely solely on the water stored at the reservoir.”

Final improvements call for various system upgrades of TWW’s delivery system and structural improvements to the Filtration Plant.

“We plan on having the best water utility in the state, and one that Trentonians can all be proud of,” concluded the mayor. “This plant brings revenue into the City. It’s an investment worth taken on behalf of our water consumers.”
