Hamilton says town water is safe

HAMILTON — Thetownship’s council discussed the safety of residents’ water, a grant for new police officers and a $500,000 grant for affordable housing at its meeting Tuesday night.
The council asked questions about the handling of Trenton Water Works’ testing in Hamilton Township, which resulted in a letter sent out to residents last month for elevated levels of trihalomethanes. The chemicals were found at levels that exceed Department of Environmental Protection standards from May 2012 to February 2013. The letter said the city will fix the problem within the next two years.
Councilman Dennis Pone said he had followed up on the concerns raised by residents at the last meeting about the safety of the water. He said the state’s environmental commission had said that the chemicals were at safe levels.
“They said filters, charcoal-type filters would remove the particular contaminant, which is a byproduct of the chlorination process,” he said.
