Water Supply


Originally founded in the Borough of Merchantville over 100 years ago (as the Merchantville Water Company) the Merchantville – Pennsauken Water Commission’s history has been one intimately tied to the Borough. It’s a history of geography, having our Main Office located at the former Borough Hall, prior to moving to our former Maple Avenue site. It is also a very personal history, as one of our most prominent former Superintendents, Walter Spencer, also served as Fire Chief for the Niagara Fire Company in the mid-1900s. The MPWC’s longest serving Commissioner is former Mayor Burt German. As we’ve moved beyond our 90-year anniversary as the MPWC, we celebrated this rich history of providing the Borough of Merchantville with the State’s award winning Best Tasting Water, at one of the most affordable prices around, and look forward to another 90 years (and beyond!) of history in the making!

The Merchantville-Pennsauken Water Commission (MPWC) services all of Merchantville, Pennsauken, and portions of the City of Camden and Cherry Hill Township.  The MPWC is co-owned by the Borough of Merchantville and Pennsauken Township and was first established in 1926.  It currently services a population of 52,200+ people with 16,400+ service connections.  Water billing is paid through the Merchantville-Pennsauken Water Commission (MPWC). This bill cannot be paid in our office.  MPWC can be reached at 856-663-0043. 


In the Fall issue of the “Pipeline”, a trade magazine published by the New Jersey American Water Works Association, the MPWC was recognized for the second time in three years for winning the “Best Tasting Water in New Jersey” competition. The AWWA establishes consensus standards for water purveyors in accordance with the Water Quality Accountability Act (WQAA).  We are proud of the MPWC's achievement!  #Drinkmorewater
