Community Policing Belmar/Lake Como 2019
The Borough of Belmar Police Department Community Policing Program has launched a new program that will include a more active role for our residents. We anticipate that this new platform will create more community involvement and enhance police officer relations,. By working together, we will address the quality of life issues and uphold order maintenance within our neighborhood.
Residents will still go directly to the police department for emergencies or situations that require IMMEDIATE ATTENTION.

New Jersey American Water Customers: As you may recall from past years, New Jersey American Water makes a temporary change in the winter to the water treatment techniques we use in our Coastal North system that serves parts of Monmouth and Ocean County. Please see the attached Press Release on our change from chloramines to free chlorine, which will start the week of February 18th 2020. When we make this switch, your water system operators should see a free chlorine residual, not just total chlorine residual that you currently see w/ the current chloramines disinfection.
It is possible that your customers will notice some chlorine taste and odor in the water. Also, while the transition from free chlorine to chloramines can have an impact on fish and other aquatic life, this temporary switch from chloramines to free chlorine will not. We are reaching out to dialysis centers in the region as well to notify them of the change as the switch may impact some of their procedures. We will notify you again when the temporary treatment switch ends and we go back to chloramines so that you can be prepared. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Sump Pump Notice
As a reminder, it is ILLEGAL to have a sump pump connected to the Borough’s sewer system. Excess water flow through the sewers increases water bill rates for all residents and businesses. Recent rainfall events have highlighted this issue as water on certain streets was caused by sump pumps illegally connected to the sewer lines. As a result, the Borough will be increasing enforcement efforts. For more information please contact the Public Works department who can advise on how to ensure your sump pump is up to code. There is a grace period to make the necessary corrections before fines will be issued so please take this opportunity to ensure your property is compliant.
