Glen Ridge

Lead Service Water-line and Fire Hydrant Replacement Project 2019 - 2020


To improve public health and water quality, the Borough of Glen Ridge is
undertaking a Lead Service Line Replacement Program to replace all
residential water service lines that are made of lead materials throughout
the Borough.  Currently, the Borough does not have exceedance levels of lead
content in the water.

The replacement program replaces the Borough's portion of the service line
from the water main in the street to the curb stop (the shutoff valve
located near the curb line). Construction is scheduled to replace the
remaining 659 lead services in the Borough starting in November 2019, with
an expected completion date in June 2020.

In addition, the Borough reviewed individual properties' water service cards
to determine the material of supply pipe used from the curb stop of the
supply line to the home. This section of piping is the responsibility of the
property owner. Property owners where records indicate have iron or lead
piping in this supply line have been sent a letter informing them on this
condition, and providing options of them to have the line replaced if they
choose. The Borough strongly recommends customers plan to engage a
contractor to replace the customer owned portion of the lead service line.
