Water Conservation MeasuresThe Berlin Borough Water Department is encouraging all Public Water System customers to conserve water. Conservation has been a logical tool in times of drought or other water supply emergency for a long time. Now it is widely accepted as an important part of responsible water supply management. It can defer the need for water supply development, reduce flows to waste water treatment facilities, and reduce costs for both the purveyor and the consumer. In short, conservation can save money as well as water and preserve our resources into the future. The following are just a few ideas that the consumer may wish to utilize to conserve water:

  • Water your lawn in the early morning or early evening hours. This reduces the amount of water lost to evaporation.
  • Install low flow showerheads
  • Install low flow aerators or flow restrictions in kitchen and bathroom sinks
  • Place a brick in tank of your toilet, this reduces the amount of water needed for each flush
  • Use self-closing nozzles when using a hose for washing cars, sidewalks, windows, etc
  • Install water-conserving toilets when replacing bathroom fixtures
  • Run dishwashers only when full

Source Water Assessment Summary The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has conducted an assessment of the water sources that supply each public water system in the State of New Jersey. The goal of this assessment was to measure each system's susceptibility to contamination, not actual (if any) contamination measured in a water supply system.
