TRENTON, NJ (MERCER)–
Trenton Water Works asks customers and consumers in its five-municipality service area to discontinue nonessential outdoor water use until further notice during this unprecedented heat wave. TWW’s service area comprises Trenton, Ewing Township, parts of Hamilton Township, Lawrence Township, and Hopewell Township.
“Although TWW systems are operating normally, the heat wave has significantly increased water demand,” said Mark Lavenberg, Director of the city’s Department of Water and Sewer, which operates the water utility. “Therefore the water utility is being proactive in requesting that its customers and service-area consumers restrict their outdoor use of water, which will help ease demand on TWW’s water supply.”
Here are exceptions to this Advisory:
—> Watering of new sod or seed if daily watering is required. We recommend that any planting of new sod or seed that has not already taken place be delayed until the fall.
—> Use of private wells for irrigation.
—> Commercial uses of outdoor water, such as for nurseries, farm stands, power washing, plumbing, athletic fields, and car washes.
—> Watering of athletic fields.
