In order to comply with Safe Drinking Water Act amendments, the Bellmawr Water Department issues an annual report on monitoring performed on the Borough’s drinking water.
The purpose of the report is to advance consumer understanding of drinking water and to heighten awareness of the need to protect our precious water resource.
The Bellmawr Water Department’s 2016 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report is now available. Included in the report are facts about Bellmawr Water:
•Bellmawr’s water resource is drawn from the Potomac-Raritan-Magothy aquifer, using four wells.
•Bellmawr has two water treatment plants.
•Treatment Plant #01 is located at the corner of Leaf Avenue and Bell Road and uses wells #4 and #5, which are drilled 560 feet deep.
•Treatment Plant #02 is located on Warren Avenue and uses wells #3 and #6, which are drilled to a depth of 359 feet.
•Both treatment facilities use filters containing Manganese Greensand as the filter medium.
•In order to conserve water, the odd-even outdoor water usage schedule is utilized to conserve water between May 1st through September 15th. This system is utilized in order to stay under a 353 million gallon quota.
•In order to remove viruses and bacteria from the water, the Bellmawr Water Department chlorinates its water.
•The Bellmawr Water Department flushes fire hydrants twice a year to remove sediment and to make sure the hydrants are in proper working condition.
