New Jersey Arsenic Awareness Initaitive
Many northern New Jersey residents get their drinking water from private wells, and NJ Private Well Testing Act results from 2002-2012 show that >10% of wells tested exceed state limits for arsenic in drinking water, and in some townships >40% of private wells tested exceeded state limits. The New Jersey Arsenic Awareness Initiative was developed to inform owners about the need to test their wells and the importance of treating drinking water for arsenic when results show levels exceeding the standards.
If you have a private well in Northern New Jersey, check out these videos!


UPDATE - February 11, 2015
(click on title to see full document)

June 17 2014 - The Route 519 bridge at the intersection of County Route 651 and Barbertown-Idell Road in Kingwood Township collapsed on June 12, 2014.  Detours have been posted.  

All bridges and culverts in Kingwood Township are the responsibility of Hunterdon County.  County engineers are assessing the bridge and are looking at short and long terms solutions to reopen Route 519 as soon as possible.  Please plan alternate routes for the foreseeable future.  We will update this posting as soon as we know any additional information.

Kingwood: The Development of Route 12 Study
Project Video & Community Survey Available
As part of the “Kingwood: The Development of Route 12 Study”, we have created a project video and launched a survey to supplement the public workshop that occurred at Kingwood Elementary School in February.  The survey includes images and videos describing the materials shared with the audience at that meeting, then asks questions to gauge your opinion about future growth and preservation along Route 12 and throughout the community. 
To view the video and participate in the survey visit:
