TWW Begins Testing for Legionella Systemwide Using a Method Approved by the NJ Dep of Environmental

TWW Begins Testing for Legionella Systemwide Using a Method Approved by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection


On April 10, led by TWW's Chief Chemist DiAsia Brooks, TWW began systemwide monitoring for Legionella via sampling locations approved by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). The NJDEP approved the Legionella culture method for analysis. TWW monitors various Revised Total Coliform Rule (RCTR) locations, including storage tanks, the water-filtration plant, and the 100 million-gallon Pennington Avenue Reservoir. This work is part of TWW's comprehensive Legionella mitigation plan executed with the NJDEP and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). To learn more about reducing Legionella risks, click here.


It is important to note that sampling and low-velocity flushing to raise chlorine residuals in targeted areas of TWW's water-distribution system will continue over the next several weeks. TWW will provide the specific locations on its Legionella Mitigation, Updates, and Information webpage at Click here to read the low-velocity flushing public notice issued on April 1.


As TWW advances its multifaceted work to strengthen operations and improve water quality under a Unilateral Consent Order, it is essential to understand how the water utility engages its customers and service-area consumers.


TWW communicates with its customers and service-area consumers in various ways: direct mail, conventional media outlets, advertising, Facebook, and municipal government websites for regular communications. 


During an emergency, the water utility utilizes its Reverse 911 system, TWW-Connects (CodeRed), and coordinates communications and messaging, as needed, with service-area officials, OEM personnel, state government officials, and regulators, guided by its Emergency Response Plan (ERP). 


To receive a Robocall, text message, or e-mail from TWW-Connects, TWW encourages residents to sign up for a "managed account" or as a "guest" online. Click here to sign up at the Community Notification Enrollment page of the OnSolve/CodeRed website.


For updates on TWW's activities, follow the water utility on Facebook.


If you have questions about TWW-Connects, TWW's Legionella mitigation, or anything else, call TWW's Office of Communications and Community Relations at (609) 989-3033, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
