After a Chemical Spill in The Delaware River, NJ American Water Customers Were Asked to Limit how Much Water They Used.

Last week, a chemical spilled into the Delaware River. This did not affect the treated water in New Jersey, but New Jersey American Water is taking precautions.

After the latex spill in Bristol Township, PA, on March 24, NJAW asked customers in Burlington, Camden, and Gloucester counties to limit their non-essential water use.

Officials were not 100 percent sure that the drinking water wasn’t tainted, so they told people living along the Delaware River in Pennsylvania to drink water from a bottle.

In a news release, the company said that the NJAW is “monitoring the source water and doing quality tests at different points in the treatment process and all along the distribution system.”

“At this point, the company has decided that the spill has not affected the treated drinking water that is sent to customers in the three counties that the Delaware River Regional Water Treatment Plant serves.”
