WATER DISASTER – Trenton Water Lead Ed Forum announced
Trenton, N.J. — Residents who want to learn more about their drinking water are invited to attend a Public Education Forum
Hamilton Township’s Public Education Forum will take place on Wednesday, March 27, from 6-8 p.m. at Grice Middle School, 901 Whitehorse-Hamilton Square Road.
Representatives of Trenton Water Works (TWW) will answer any questions residents may have about water quality, our operations, and the Lead Service Line Replacement Program to replace certain water-service lines with safer copper lines at residences throughout our five municipality service area. “We have made substantial progress in improving our water filtration process, which has significantly reduced the concentration of disinfection byproducts (DBPs) below federal and state standards,” said Dr. Shing-Fu Hsueh, Director of the Department of Water and Sewer, which operates the 200-year-old Trenton Water Works. “Also, we are on track to introduce a new method of corrosion control, and replace 2,600 lead service lines at homes in our service area. These milestones are important and noteworthy.” Hamilton Township’s Public Education Forum will take place on Wednesday, March 27, from 6-8 p.m. at Grice Middle School, 901 Whitehorse-Hamilton Square Road.
