ATTENTION: Residents of Elmwood Park


Please be advised that the Borough of Elmwood Park Water Department will begin a hydrant - flushing program on April 17, 2017. This program is part of an ongoing maintenance program to insure the delivery of the highest quality water. This work will be performed during regular working hours of 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.


The flushing program will last for a period of approximately 12 days according to the below schedule. Your water service will not be interrupted. During this work residents may experience some discoloration of their water. This is expected and a normal occurrence when existing water mains are disturbed. If you experience this, caution should be used in washing white clothes; however, the discoloration poses no health hazard and the water is safe for consumption. Just allow the water to

run from your cold water tap until it clears. If you have any questions regarding this program, call (201) 796-1007 during normal working hours.


The Borough apologizes for any inconvenience during this time and requests your cooperation.

Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM) MCL Violation at the Elmwood Park Water System

Our water system recent violated a drinking water standard. Although this incident was not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we did (are doing) to correct this situation. 

We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results from March 2016 through December 2016  show that our system exceeds the standard, or maximum contaminant level (MCL) for TTHM at one location.  The standard for TTHM is 80 ug/L.  It is determined by averaging all samples collected from each location for the last 12 months also known as the Locational Running Annual Average. The Locational Running Annual Average at the DPW Garage on Slater Drive, for January thru December 2016 was 82.6 ug/L.

What should I do?

  • There is nothing you need to do. You do not need to boil your water or take other corrective actions. If a situation arises where the water is no longer safe to drink, you will be notified within 24 hours.

  • If you have a severely compromised immune system, have an infant, are pregnant, or are elderly, you may be at increased risk and should seek advice from your health care providers about drinking this water.

What does this mean?

This is not an emergency. If it had been an emergency, you would have been notified within 24 hours. 

TTHM are four volatile organic chemicals which form when disinfectants react with natural organic matter in the water.

[*People who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have increased risk of getting cancer.]

What is being done?

Additional hydrant flushing of the water system is being conducted by the DPW to reduce TTHM concentrations.

For more information please contact Robert De Block at 973-998-9100 at De Block Environmental Services, LLC, PO Box 675 Woodland Park, NJ 07424

“Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.”

This notice is being sent to you by the Elmwood Park Water System, PWSID# NJ0211001

Statement from Council President / Acting Mayor Louis R. Vuoncino

Dear Elmwood Park Residents,

Let me begin by again extending my heartfelt condolences to the Mola Family on the loss of our Mayor, Richard A. Mola.

Few can imagine a consecutive 45 year career as Mayor, but Mayor Mola accomplished that through his constant hard work and provided incredible service to our Borough. He will certainly be missed by all of us, but his legacy and dedication will be remembered always.
