Coronavirus and Your Drinking Water
At Brick Township Municipal Utilities Authority (BTMUA), the health and safety of our customers, communities and employees is our top priority.
We provide essential services that are critical for our customers and much like other public agencies in New Jersey and across the U.S.,
BTMUA has activated our preparedness plans and continues to monitor situational updates provided by the Center for Disease Control,
World Health Organization, and the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management as well as other state and federal organizations.
We are continuously evaluating the situation and latest developments to determine how we can adapt and evolve our response, as necessary, to
support our customers and communities.
BTMUA’s drinking water treatment processes provide protection including filtration and disinfection of all our water supplies.
These treatments are effective in removing viruses. Our water continues to meet all current federal and state drinking water
standards. For additional information about the coronavirus and drinking water and wastewater please visit:

In an effort to keep our customers safe during the pandemic, BTMUA is suspending service shut offs at this time. If your service has been turned
off, prior to March 13th, 2020, we will restore your service. We will continue to evaluate this situation as more information becomes available.
BTMUA is also suspending non-essential field appointments. The Brick Reservoir will be closed beginning Monday, March 16th,
in accordance with guidance from federal and state agencies. The BTMUA Offices are also closed to the Public until further notice. Our Staff will
accommodate urgent customer needs by calling our Office at 732-458-7000.

Reminder to Our Customers
DO NOT FLUSH DISPOSABLE WIPES DOWN THE TOILET
With the increased use of disposable wipes during this Coronavirus pandemic, we are reminding our customers to make sure you DO NOT flush wipes
down the toilet. Disposable wipes, even those labeled as flushable, do not properly breakdown as toilet paper does in the sewer system.
Flushing these wipes can potentially cause blockage of sewer lines and sewage pumps being clogged.
This could result in sewage backing up into your home or spills to the environment, in addition to costly and time consuming repairs.
Please make sure disposable wipes are thrown IN THE TRASH and NOT flushed down the toilet.
BTMUA greatly appreciates your cooperation in maintaining a healthy sewer system for our community.
