Safe Drinking Water

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJ-DEP) has adopted a safe drinking water zero tolerance enforcement policy. This policy requires facilities with public non-community water systems to routinely sample the water at the facility to sure the water quality is acceptable. The Passaic County Department of Health, as mandated by the NJDEP, will pursue monetary penalties for any failure to sample for primary contaminants, failure to perform follow up sampling when a maximum contaminant level is exceeded for failure to provide public notice when required.

  • Residents who have a concern about the quality of their water supply are encouraged to call the Passaic County Department of Health at 973-225-3635.

The most common citations that the county issues are for violations of the following:

NJAC 7:10-5.1 et seq.- used to cite any violation of the Safe Drinking Water Act in the Code of Federal Regulations.
