The City’s water and sewer utility provides service to all residential and commercial properties, and is operated through a public-private partnership with Veolia Water. The utility is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the physical infrastructure, logistical operations and maintenance, and water allocation permits.
The City of Orange Township is committed to providing our consumers with high-quality drinking water and information about the drinking water that we provide. Drinking water health and safety standards are set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the NJ Department of Environmental Protection. We regularly test water samples to ensure that our water meets these standards.
Your annual water quality report is now available at mywater.veolia.us/OrangeCCR2021. This report contains important information about the source and quality of your drinking water. Please call 866-893-0546 to speak with someone about the report or request a paper copy. Your consumption is based on an actual reading of your water meter.
About the Sewer Division
The sewer division maintains and repairs storm and sanitary sewers, inlets, manholes and sanitary sewage pump stations.
Residents should be advised that the township is only responsible for maintenance of the sewer main that runs in the middle of the street or an approved right of way. Homeowners are responsible for maintenance of their lateral from the basement to the township sewer main.
What is Stormwater?
Stormwater is rainwater or melted snow that runs off streets, lawns and other sites. When stormwater is absorbed, it is filtered and ultimately replenishes aquifers or flows into streams and rivers.
What is Stormwater Management?
Stormwater Management is the effort to reduce runoff of rainwater or melted snow into the streets, lawns and other sites, along with improving water quality.
In developed areas, solid surfaces such as pavement and roofs prevent rain and snow from naturally soaking into the ground. Instead, water runs rapidly into storm drains, sewer systems, and drainage ditches and can cause:
- Downstream Flooding
- Stream bank erosion
- Increased turbidity (muddiness created by stirred up sediment) from erosion
- Habitat destruction of fish, wildlife, and aquatic environments
- Combined storm and sanitary sewer system overflows
- Infrastructure damage
- Threats to public health
- Contaminate streams, rivers and coastal water
