Stafford Township’s Dirty Water Problem - My9 New Jersey

Stafford Township’s Dirty Water Problem

Posted: Updated:
Stafford Township, New Jersey (My9NJ) - There is a lot of outrage from residents in Stafford Township, New Jersey about brown water coming out of their faucets.

Mayor John Spodofora says that he and the town are looking into ways to best keep the water clean.

“We take every complaint very seriously, we respond to every complaint and as of now we’re looking into this because there are complaints. We’re trying to see if there’s anything in addition that we can do,” he explained.

Spodofora said that the iron content in the water table is high in their area, but people don’t need to be concerned.

“Nothing that we’re seeing in the water indicates any danger whatsoever to anybody,” he explained.

Resident Reissa Kenny Roma says that even if it’s safe, the brown water is still a huge inconvenience.

“You know it’s such a problem because you come home from the beach with sandy kids and then you can’t put them in the tub and then it’ll come out of the kitchen sink and you’re cooking with that water,” she said.

Down at the Stafford water treatment plant there is brand new equipment and piping which is less than ten years old. Stafford Township administrator James Moran said despite the color, they have tests that prove the water in the area is clean.

“Large volumes of water are pumped through the system and there may be particular iron out in the system that may cause the brown water in an individual home. At no time does the level of iron, which causes the brown water, ever exceed the state guidelines,” he explained.
