New Jersey American Water Acquires Operations in Plumsted Township

Systems serve Jensen’s Deep Run community

New Jersey American Water completed the acquisition of the Jensen's Deep Run community's water system and wastewater treatment and collection system in Plumsted Township, Ocean County, N.J., effective Jan. 3. Last month, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities approved New Jersey American Water's franchise for wastewater service in the Jensen's Deep Run community. New Jersey American Water has held the franchise for water service since 1906. The Jensen's Deep Run water and wastewater system serves approximately 750 residents.
As New Jersey American Water customers, the residents of Jensen's Deep Run will have the benefit of high-quality water at a cost of less than a penny per gallon. The company will provide its new customers with 24-hour customer assistance, reliable service and investments to continually improve the community's water and wastewater system.
“New Jersey American Water looks forward to serving the residents of Jensen's Deep Run,” said John Bigelow, company president. “We are committed to providing our customers with excellent water and wastewater services, supporting environmental programs and communicating with the community on water-related issues.”
