WATER


Jackson Township MUA Water System

The Jackson Township Municipal Utilities Authority's water system is composed of two advanced water treatment facilities, nine major production wells, three finished water pumping stations, two elevated water storage tanks and four ground storage tanks. On average, the Jackson MUA pumps more than three million gallons of pure drinking water to the residents of Jackson each day. Our production wells are located in three different aquifer system underlying Jackson Township, the Potomac-Raritan-Magothy aquifer system is by far the largest and where most of our water is produced. Five of our production wells are located in this formation with an average depth of 1400 ft. Each well is capable of producing over 1,500 gallons per minute, which is pumped to our treatment facilities for the removal of iron and manganese. Our four other wells pump water from both the Vincentown and Englishtown aquifer formations which range in depth from 200 ft. to 500 ft. There are literally billions of gallons of clean drinking water underneath Jackson Township, which will provide the residents of the town with a reliable source of water for decades to come with proper management.
