Dear Residents and Business Owners,
The Borough of Clementon is currently experiencing water supply problems such as low pressure, low volume and discolored water through-out the entire Borough. You may expect some turbid water and pressure drops. This problem occurred for the following reasons.
- Well #9 located on New Freedom Rd is OOS (out of service) and currently being redeveloped.
- Well #9 water tower located on New Freedom Rd is OOS and currently being connected to a new chlorine mixing tank.
- Unexpectedly this morning the #11 well located on White Horse Ave suffered a complete mechanical breakdown and is unable to supply water.
This well failure has shown our remaining #10 well located on Cherry Ln. and our remaining water tower located on Sitley Ave cannot keep up with our system demand. At this time, we are asking our residents and business owners to conserve water as much as possible. Limit lawn watering, take short showers, inspect your internal plumbing for any leaks or dripping faucets.
The Clementon Fire Department has been notified and will take appropriate action to keep our community safe and provide Fire Protection as normal.
Clementon is working with our emergency service contractors to resolve this issue ASAP.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Further information will be available as conditions change.
Lew Scheider, Water Superintendent
