UPDATE FROM THE BELLMAWR WATER DEPARTMENT
The Warren Avenue Water Treatment Facility (“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 pg/L. The average level of PFNA over the last year has been 0.019 pg/L.
Borough customers will continue receiving water treated at the Leaf and Bell Water Treatment Facility (“Leaf and Bell WTF”) and the Warren Avenue WTF will remain offline until the presence of PFNA at the Warren Avenue WTF 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.
On March 31, 2020, the Bellmawr Water Department completed the installation of appropriate upgrades to the Warren Avenue WTF in the form of an ion exchange resin filtration system to remove PFNA from the Warren Avenue WTF potable water supply.
Once the Warren Avenue WTF is fully tested and approved for service by the NJDEP, the ion exchange resin filtration 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.
