Elmer Borough Hall    

Welcome to the Borough of Elmer Web Site.  "The Small Town With The Big Welcome."  Elmer was incorporated in 1893. We are located in the South Eastern part of Salem County.  We are just a short drive from shore points and Philadelphia.

Attention Elmer Borough Residents:

The Borough of Elmer will be undertaking a major capital improvement to rehabilitate the 200,000 gallon elevated water storage tank.  In order to complete the project, the elevated storage tank will be taken out of service on August 1, 2017.  Even though the Borough Water Department has taken every precaution to ensure consistent water service, there could be an occasional surging in water pressure should an emergency occur.  Please feel free to give the Water Department a call at (856) 207- 3760 should you have any questions about the project.


Mayor and Borough Council
