STORMWATER REGULATIONS

 

The DEP has implemented new Stormwater Regulations. There are many new rules that must be followed, including illegal dumping to all water ways. This includes, but is not limited to, dumping of paints, solvents, trash, grass clippings ,motor oil, etc. in any street in the Borough.

CHECK OUT THE STORMWATER WEBSITE at www.nj.gov/dep/stormwater





Additional information regarding stormwater and watershed management can be found at: http://www.state.nj.us/dep/watershedmgt/stormwater.htm

 

Rain washes pollutants into storm drains and directly into our lakes, rivers and the ocean.
So what can you do?

PLEASE PLACE YOUR TRASH AT THE CURB IN APPROPRIATE CONTAINERS OR TIED TRASH BAGS. THIS WILL KEEP THE TRASH FROM BLOWING AROUND DURING WINDY DAYS.

HERE ARE SOME WATER SAVING TIPS:

CHECK ALL OF YOUR FAUCETS AND TOILETS FOR LEAKS. FOOD COLORING CAN BE USED TO CHECK YOUR TOILET.

REPAIR ANY LEAKS YOU FIND.

TAKE SHORTER SHOWERS; USE A TIMER IF YOU THINK IT WILL HELP.

USE THE LOAD SELECTOR ON YOUR WASHING MACHINE; DO NOT FILL THE WASHING MACHINE FOR A SMALL LOAD.
