TWW Announcement: TWW will begin a phased rollout of its corrosion-control project on Tuesday, December 3. The project will introduce zinc orthophosphate into a portion of our 683-mile, water-distribution system to prevent lead from leaching into the drinking water from the older service lines and household plumbing fixtures in TWW's service area. We started laying the groundwork for corrosion control in February 2018. Corroded water-service lines are often a source of lead contamination in drinking water. Attached contains more details about the program and Orthophosphate.


TWW - Connects Reverse 911 System: TWW - Connects is a Reverse 911 or "Robocall" system that Trenton Water Works will be using to nofiy residents about water related issues. See flyer for more details and how to register.
