May 19, 2023

TRENTON, NJ (MERCER)–Around 9:15 a.m. several 9-1-1 calls were received for a large column of smoke coming from the Trenton Water Works Filtration Plant on Route 29. Smoke could be seen coming from the rear of the structure as reported by many people in the area. Upon arrival of the Trenton Fire Department it was determined to be smoke from a truck exhaust at the right side of the building. Firefighters returned to their stations and determined it was several good intent calls.

Several posts made on Facebook and other social media were inquiring about the smoke condition.
