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!


Creek Road Detour
The Borough of Frenchtown would like to inform anyone using Creek Road of the construction project and detour.    This project includes constructing approx. 150 feet of gabion wall (i.e. stacked baskets filled with stone) to stabilize an eroded portion of the stream embankment on which Creek Road runs, along with re- setting the existing guiderail and restoring the existing gravel roadway.  

In order to construct the wall, Creek Road (because of its narrowness and unstable condition) will need to be closed in this area to all traffic. Work is proposed to commence on Monday, September 15, 2014 and it is anticipated that the road will be closed for 2-3 weeks, depending upon the weather.   Map of Creek Rd Detour

UPDATE - 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
