GWUDI Updates


The results of the monitoring program indicate the following:

1. Ridgewood Water has successfully completed the required sampling as described in the EPA-approved monitoring plan.

2. The data collected to date show no conclusive evidence of direct influence of surface water from Group 1 or Group 2 wells.

3. Two Group 3 raw water sample collected prior to disinfection from Wortendyke Well #6 & Salem Well indicated potential evidence of vulnerability to fecal contamination.  However, water from each well is being treated to achieve 4-log removal of viruses.     Wortendyke well #6 is shutdown and Salem well underwent sanitary repairs and will return to operation with treatment to achieve 4 log removal of viruses.

4. As of 12/23/19, NJDEP has reviewed the results of the EPA monitoring plan and determined that only 4 of the studied wells require follow up monitoring.
