Water meters are read and bills are mailed each quarter.  The Borough has installed remote water meter registers which can be read from outside the house. 

Things to Remember:
 
  • Any internal leak, however small, can quickly add up to several gallons of wasted water. Repair all leaks promptly to avoid high bills.  If you are unsure if you have a leak, please contact the Billing office to schedule an appointment.
  • Road Opening Permits are required anytime road excavation is done. These permits can be obtained from the Code Enforcement Department.

Sewer Department

 
If you experience sewer back-up please call the Water and Sewer Department during normal office hours, or the Highland Park Police at 732-572-3800 after regular business hours and holidays.  Please call our offices before calling a sewer cleaning contractor as we will have an employee come out to inspect the borough's main and let you know if a cleaning contractor is needed.

  • Road Opening Permits are required anytime road excavation is done. These permits can be obtained from the Code Enforcement Department.
  • Sanitary Sewer Project-the borough is involved in finding excessive inflow and infiltration of water which gets into our sewer system. Problem areas are being grouted, tele-viewed and pipes are being replaced.

Water Quality
"The Borough of Highland Park takes the health and safety of our residents seriously.  We’re aware of the Environmental Working Group article and appreciate the opportunity to clarify that metric assigned to our Borough.  Highland Park had a Total Trihalomethane MCL violation in 2016 which contributed to the 5 rating published in the reporting.  However, corrective action is already in place to address that violation and we have since regained and are currently in compliance.  It’s important to understand that the water delivered to Highland Park residents meets or is better than all regulatory standards. We mail annual water quality testing and monitoring data to all residents and want them to be informed about their drinking water."
