Millville seeks future water usage info to revise ordinance

MILLVILLE – Zan Murray is conducting a study to determine how much water is available for Millville’s use and how much water the city actually needs.Murray is an engineer from JUB Engineers Inc. He presented this source feasibility study to the Millville City Council at a meeting Dec. 9. The city is revising its water ordinance, which requires residents to give up a certain amount of water shares when building new property. The completion of the study will allow them to know how to revise the law.They are looking at different sources of water available for the city’s use, especially for the upcoming peak summer months.One water source option that Murray presented was a Glen Ridge well water blending project, which would decrease the amount of nitrates in the water from the well. Aquifer Storage and Recovery would need to approve of the project.Another option is to improve the current park well so that it can pump 1,000 gallons per minute instead of the 680 gallons per minute it is currently pumping.The last option Murray talked about was to put in a new well.
