Attention Greenwich Township Resident:
The Township has recently been made aware of the evidence of a 1,4-Dioxane which has been found within some nearby wells located within Franklin Township. To date, there has only been 1 confirmed test result within Greenwich Township above the State maximum contaminant level. This notice is to serve as notification to any homeowners who serves their property with a well that they should consider having their well tested with a specific request for 1,4-Dioxane.
Please be advised that the NJDEP is aware of this condition and they have been conducting additional testing of other wells in the general vicinity of the Northern and Eastern sections of the Township. With the one exception of the property noted above, there have been no other elevated readings above the NJDEP Groundwater Quality Standard of 0.4 ppb (parts per billion). The NJDEP is satisfied that no migration of this substance is impacting the groundwater of Greenwich Township.
