Water is our most precious, natural resource.
West Deptford Twp., along with our NJDEP, and local petrochemical company, Solvay, are proceeding in a manner to our current PFNA contaminated wells, similar to a popular commercial that talks about monitoring rather than fixing a problem.
Starting last week another monitoring well is being drilled, this time in the Rolling Brook Farms development. Yet, at the same time, wells #3 and #8 remain closed due to PFNA contamination. Well #8 is a large supplier of water to our community, especially in the southern end of town.
It is interesting the yearly WATER QUALITY REPORT recently mailed to all property owners in WD indicates an increase of water (3%) supplied by NJ American Water, of which we pay additional amount for the source.
