Administration Asks NJ Water Companies Not to Shut Off Service If Bills Go Unpaid

“The Murphy administration yesterday asked all water providers in New Jersey to suspend shutoffs for nonpayment of bills until the end of the public health emergency created by the spread of COVID-19.

The plea is directed at every water system, public and private, including those operated by municipal governments. They’re all being asked to stop shutoffs until the end of the outbreak of COVID-19 by Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver, Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Catherine McCabe and Board of Public Utilities president Joseph Fiordaliso.”
