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 Bulk Purchase Customers: As you are aware, in February 2019, New Jersey American Water made a temporary change to the water treatment technique we use in our Coastal North system that serves parts of Monmouth and Ocean County. On or around April 10, 2019, we will transition back to chloramine disinfection from the currently used free chlorine disinfection method. Please see the attached Press Release for details. When we make this switch, your water system operators should begin measuring a total chlorine residual, not just the free chlorine residual. With the switch back to chloramines, the free chlorine residual should be very low or close to non-detect.
It is possible that your customers may have noticed some chlorine taste and odor in the water the past few months. With the transition back to chloramine disinfection, that taste and odor should subside. While the February transition from chloramines to free chlorine should not have impacted fish and other aquatic life, this transition back to chloramines may. As this may also affect procedures for patients on dialysis, we will reach out to the New Jersey Renal Council with the list of affected communities so they can notify the individual Renal / Dialysis centers and home dialysis patients.

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.
