The Berlin Borough Water Department is encouraging all Public Water System customers to conserve water. Conservation has been a
logical tool in times of drought or other water supply emergency for a long time. Now it is widely accepted as an important
part of responsible water supply management. It can defer the need for water supply development, reduce flows to waste water
treatment facilities, and reduce costs for both the purveyor and the consumer. In short, conservation can save money as well as
water and preserve our resources into the future.
The following are just a few ideas that the consumer may wish to utilize to conserve water:
- Water your lawn in the early morning or early evening hours. This reduces the amount of water lost to evaporation.
- Install low flow showerheads
- Install low flow aerators or flow restrictions in kitchen and bathroom sinks
- Place a brick in tank of your toilet, this reduces the amount of water needed for each flush
- Use self-closing nozzles when using a hose for washing cars, sidewalks, windows, etc
- Install water-conserving toilets when replacing bathroom fixtures
- Run dishwashers only when full
The water Department will be upgrading a majority of our existing water meters and meter reading capabilities in 2007-2008. Residents
will be notified by our contracted installer to replace their water meter or add a radio read box on the outside of their house. Once
the work is completed, all meter readings will be performed quarterly by our staff in the Borough Hall Water Office.

Source Water Assessment Summary
The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has conducted an assessment of the water sources that supply each public water
system in the State of New Jersey. The goal of this assessment was to measure each system's susceptibility to contamination, not
actual (if any) contamination measured in a water supply system.
