Drought restrictions in New Jersey’s future?


In light of continuing drought conditions in northern New Jersey, the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will hold a public hearing tomorrow at the Millburn Free Library to review current water supply conditions in the State.

A Drought Watch is in effect for all or parts of Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Morris and Passaic counties. In the event water supply conditions worsen, the DEP could declare a Drought Warning, allowing the Department to exercise non-emergency powers to lessen the impact of a potential water emergency.

Public Hearing 
Wednesday, Aug. 25
10:30 a.m.
Millburn Free Library
200 Glen Avenue
Millburn, NJ
