 Currently, we are participating with the County Office of Emergency

Management to update the municipality’s Hazard Mitigation Plan. The original

plan was adopted several years ago and needs to be updated to maintain

eligibility for certain federal grants as well as make sure we are working

together to reduce the risk from natural disasters and hazards to the extent

possible. If you are interested in learning more about this project, please

Dear Residents:

 Recently, I have become aware

of pockets of residents who have

expressed concern about their

water quality as a result of

intermittent discoloration of their

water. Please note that we are

working with the Merchantville

Pennsauken Water Commission

(MPWC) to identify and resolve

this issue. I have personally

spoken with the MPWC Chief

Operating Officer, Michael

Saraceni, and commissioners of

the MPWC and I have been

assured that the MPWC is taking

all necessary steps to resolve this

issue and ensure continued

clean water for our residents.


I am further assured that any

action taken by MPWC that may

have an impact on the flow or

pressure of resident’s water will

be preceded by notice through

hand delivered correspondence

and notice through the Reverse

911 system. Should you

experience issues with your

water quality, please contact

the MPWC directly at their

emergency hotline,


Contacting the MPWC is the

quickest and most effective

way for you to receive a 

response to your water

quality concerns.


Thank you.

Edward F. Brennan
