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
