Middlesex Water $52 Million Plant to Treat Ground Water for PFAS Compounds Now in Service
In 2021, the
New Jersey’s standard for PFOA is 0.014 parts per billion (ppb) and is among the most stringent standards in the nation. The 0.014 ppb is based on a running annual average (RAA), in which the four most recent quarters of monitoring data are averaged. Middlesex’s RAA for PFOA at the Park Avenue Facility is currently at a level that is non-detectible under current analytical technology.
“I am deeply appreciative of our internal engineering and operations teams and external consultants who worked together to address this issue so effectively and efficiently. Our Company did not place PFOA into the groundwater, yet we’re committed to protecting public health and as such, are required to expend significant funds and labor resources to remove it to comply with standards,” said
Middlesex has been issuing periodic Public Notification to its customers regarding plant construction progress. Notices of the construction completion milestone are being mailed to all customers and posted to the Company’s website at www.middlesexwater.com
