Middlesex Water Begins Treating Ground Water for PFAS Compounds
“As the summer months approach, our team has been focused on meeting consumption demands and constantly evaluating operational alternatives to continue to ensure a safe and reliable source of drinking water. Establishing an advance treatment solution while the larger portion of the new plant is being constructed allows us to utilize an existing source of supply and produce water from our wellfield that complies with state and federal guidelines while also supporting seasonal demands,” said
As groundwater is slowly introduced back into the distribution system, customers may notice changes in the hardness of the water. As initial changes in the flow and direction of water stabilize, customers may also observe temporary, harmless discoloration. Customers who may experience temporary discoloration may choose to let their faucet run for 2-3 minutes until the discoloration subsides prior to consuming or using the water for cooking. The Company continues to monitor the water treatment process and perform water quality tests to ensure the continued safety of its water for consumption, bathing and other domestic needs.
