Elmer Water Department

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
John Meier, Water Dept. Superintendent
Bob Richards, Assistant Water Dept. Superintendent

Once again the Elmer Water Department entered the South Jersey Water Professional Association water tasting contest.  We competed with many South Jersey municipal water systems and were awarded the grand prize for the best tasting water for the annual 2013 contest held in Gloucester City.  We previously won in 2008 and have been in the top three since 2009.  Any questions, you can contact Bob Richards at 856-207-3760.
