UPDATE FROM THE BELLMAWR WATER DEPARTMENT

Perfluorononanoic Acid (PFNA) at Warren Avenue Water Treatment Facility

The Warren Avenue WTF has been completely off-line since October 15, 2019 and has remained closed since that date. On September 26, 2019, we received notice that the sample collected on August 13, 2019 showed that our system exceeded the standard, or maximum contaminant level (MCL), for PFNA. The New Jersey standard for PFNA is 0.013 µg/L. The average level of PFNA over the last year has been 0.019 µg/L.

Currently, the Bellmawr Water Department is in the process of implementing appropriate upgrades to the Warren Avenue WTF in the form of the installation of an ion exchange resin filtration system with an anticipated place in service date of completion date of March 31, 2020.

In the interim, Borough customers will continue receiving water treated at the Leaf and Bell Water Treatment Facility (“Leaf and Bell WTF”) until the presence of PFNA at the Warren Avenue Treatment facility has been brought into compliance with mandated NJDEP standards. The Leaf and Bell WTF has not detected the presence of PFNA and meets of NJDEP treatment standards.

Once the Warren Avenue WTF upgrades are installed, the new treatment system will remove PFNA from the potable water supply to be in compliance with NJDEP standards. Extensive testing will be completed before the Warren Avenue WTF is restored to normal operation. We reiterate, the Warren Avenue WTF will remain off-line until the corrective treatment processes are in place and testing has verified compliance with NJDEP regulations.

There is nothing you need to do. You do not need to boil your water or take other corrective actions. However, if you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor. If you have a severely compromised immune system, have an infant, are pregnant, or are elderly, you may be at increased risk and should seek advice from your health care providers about drinking this water.

Some people who drink water containing PFNA in excess of the MCL over many years could experience problems with their liver; kidney; immune system; or, in males, reproductive system. For females, drinking water containing PFNA in excess of the MCL over many years may cause developmental delays in a fetus and or infant.

For more information please contact Borough Clerk, Francine M. Wright, (856)-933-1313 ext. 1209.

The Bellmawr Water Department has taken every effort to share this information with all customers via hand delivery, website and other postings, and the like.
