Water pressure is fully restored for all Aqua New Jersey Mercer County (Hamilton, Hamilton Square, Robbinsville and Chesterfield) customers impacted by a well pump malfunction in Robbinsville.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank our customers for their patience and helping to support the system’s recovery through water conservation efforts.
