Beginning next week, we will start our annual hydrant flushing in Runnemede to clean our distribution mains and perform operational checks on fire hydrants. We expect to be in the area from March 13th thru March 24th . While water mains are being cleaned, customers may notice short periods of low water pressure or discolored water. If customers experience temporary water discoloration, New Jersey American Water recommends running the cold water until it is clear. The following steps are also encouraged: Draw water for cooking prior to the flushing period. Store a large bottle of water in the refrigerator for drinking. Check for discolored water before using the washing machine or dishwasher. If water pressure or water volume seems low after flushing has been completed, check faucet screens for trapped particles. In addition to viewing the schedule on the company’s website, customers also have the option to be updated on the local flushing schedule via phone call, text or email by enrolling in New Jersey American Water’s customer notification system at www.mywater.amwater.com.

To avoid heat-related illness, the Camden County Department of Health and Human Services recommends the following: Avoid, as much as possible, working or playing in the hot sun or other hot areas. If you must be out in the sun, wear a head covering. A wide-brimmed hat or visor will not only protect your head from intense rays of the sun, it will also provide a shield for your eyes. Use air-conditioners and fans. Open windows to release trapped hot air. Those taking regular medication should consult with their physician. Some medications cause an adverse reaction in hot weather. Wear lightweight clothing. Drink plenty of non-alcoholic liquids, warm and cool. Because the body loses fluids in the heat, drinking lots of liquids helps to avoid dehydration. Maintain a normal diet. Shower or bathe in water that is near skin temperature. Do not leave older people, children or pets alone in cars. Make sure your pets also have plenty of fresh drinking water. The early warning signs of heat stress are decreased energy, slight loss of appetite, faintness, light-headedness and nausea. People experiencing these symptoms should go to a cool environment, drink liquids, remove excess clothing and rest. Serious signs of heat stress include unconsciousness, rapid heartbeat, throbbing headache, dry skin, chest pain, mental confusion, irritability, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle cramps, staggering and difficulty breathing. People experiencing these symptoms should get to immediate medical attention. While waiting for help, move the person to a cool area, remove excess clothing, spray with water, and fan the person. In an emergency, dial 911.

INSTALLMENT PLAN AVAILABILITY BE ADVISED that State law requires the Borough of Runnemede to offer residential customers an installment plan for unpaid sewer charges. Residential customers offered an installment plan have 30 days to respond. To maintain the installment plan, a residential customer must make timely payments on all current charges as well as the installment plan. If the residential customer fails to pay their arrearages and/or current charges within 30 days after the due date, then the installment plan is void and the Borough of Runnemede can proceed with enforcement. For bill assistance and arrearage forgiveness programs, such as LIHWAP, go to https://njdca-housing.dynamics365portals.us/lihwapfaq or call 1-800-510-3102.
Ordinance #18-03 provides general regulations for the safe and sanitary conditions for cats. Moreover, it permits and regulates Community Cat Colonies within the Borough of Runnemede. Finally, the Ordinance allows for the trapping, neutering, vaccination and ear-tipping of community cats. Following this process, they will be returned to the area where they were trapped. This Ordinance serves as a means of controlling the feral cat population and providing for the safety of feral cats and the community at large. Notice in the photo (left) the tipping of the left ear. This is the sign of a cared for feral cat that has been spayed or neutered and vaccinated. Do not take to the pound, they have already been trapped and belong to a feral cat colony. The best help to give these cats is an outdoor shelter and food and water.
