Water Conservation Notice


The Borough’s water conservation ordinance  is in effect each summer, please below for additional information.  Due to current lack of rainfall along with high temperatures, we ask that all residents ensure compliance with the ordinance by observing your designated watering days and times.  This will help to mitigate the need to implement further water restrictions should dry weather conditions continue. Thank you. 


Effective May 1st though September 30th, automatic lawn, garden and landscape watering is only permitted as follows: 

Properties East of Railroad Tracks – Watering only Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday

Properties West of Railroad Tracks - Watering only Monday, Wednesday and Saturday

The time when watering will be permitted on the above days are as follows:

A. For in-ground installed water systems from 4:00 A.M. to 7:00 A.M.

B. Above ground watering systems from 4:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M.

There shall be no automatic watering of properties at any time on FRIDAYS

Hand held hoses are permitted on all days, including Fridays

Regulations shall not apply to:

1. The use of water for commercial horticultural nursery use.

 2. The use of water for newly installed sod or seed lawns every day except Friday during hours set forth above for a period of two weeks from installation with written notice provided to the Borough’s Department of Public Works at  33 North Central Avenue 201-825-3400 extension 234 or 237, or email to

Thank you for your cooperation during this normally high consumption period which will enhance our chances of not introducing a ban on outdoor watering.  Failure to comply with the ordinance can result in issuance of a summons.
