Water and Sewer

The department also handles the water and sanitary systems in town. Various services are available to residents who may be experiencing a problem or have a concern about these utilities. From leak detection and household monitoring for leaks, to problems with your sanitary lines.

Call the office (732) 892-1287 to find out about charges related to some of these services or to report a water leak or sewer blockage in the street. During off hours you should contact the Point Pleasant Police (732) 892-0060 to report these problems.

Hydrant Flushing

Hydrant flushing begins the last week of March (weather permitting), and will continue through April.

Flushing will take place each day, Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Residents should refrain from doing laundry during these times as you will likely experience discolored water for several days while we are in your area.

This is a necessary and required function to maintain our overall water system and quality. We appreciate your patience!

Sewer Blockages

Should you experience a sewer blockage, first determine if your entire home is affected, or just one sink or toilet.  If you determine that it is the entire house call our office (732)-892-1287 from 8:30 am – 4:00 pm Monday through Thursday and 9:00 am – 4:00 pm on Friday.  During other hours call the Police Department at (732)-892-0060.

A representative of our department will return your call.  There are charges that are associated with this service should the blockage not be the responsibility of the Borough.

The Borough assumes responsibility before the point where the homeowner’s connection was made.  The connection is often referred to as a fernco.  This is where the homeowner’s sewer lateral connects to the Borough’s sewer lateral.  It is most often found between the curb line and the homeowner’s clean out.  The connection itself is also the homeowner’s responsibility.
