Initially started in 1877 and then known as the Bridgeton Water Works, the department was considered at the time to be quite elaborate as it covered the entire city with 7 miles of pipe, 37 stop valves and 53 fire hydrants. Active from that point to the present, the Bridgeton Water & Sewer Department is today responsible for maintaining 88 miles of water and sewer lines throughout the community. Counting 9 active wells, 2 radium treatment plants, and 2 storage tanks under their charge, the Water Department provides an average of 2.5 million gallons of water to Bridgeton's residential, commercial and industrial customers. The Bridgeton Water & Sewer Department adheres to strict water-testing regulations established by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. Beyond compliance with these strict health and safety standards; the department is dedicated to best practices within the industry and toward that end, yearly consumer confidence reports are sent to customers as part of that process.
