of Livingston is committed to providing our consumers with high
quality drinking water and information about the drinking water
that we provide. Drinking water health and safety standards are
set by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the NJ Department
of Environmental Protection. We regularly test water samples to
ensure that the water meets these standards.
The Township of Livingston's water supply is
derived from a blend of production wells within the Township and
bulk water supplies purchased from New Jersey American Water (NJAW).
Twelve production wells are owned and operated by the Township.
Water purchased from NJAW is a blend of sources that includes:
groundwater from the Brunswick Shales, the Buried Valley Aquifer
and the Gneiss Rock Formation; and surface water from the Canoe
Brook Reservoirs, Passaic River, Raritan River and Wanaque Reservoir.
The Township also has metered interconnections with the City of
East Orange for emergency use.
