Drinking Water and Public Health

New Jersey offers some of the most pure and safe drinking water anywhere. But it remains important to understand the impact of possible contaminants to public water supplies and private wells. The New Jersey Department of Health Drinking Water and Public Health Project provides information to the public and works together with regulators to provide clean, safe drinking water to New Jersey residents. This project is a collaborative activity with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.

If you have any questions, please contact the Environmental and Occupational Health Surveillance Program.

The most common contaminants and their impacts can be found in the resources below:
