Trenton, N.J. — Trenton Water Works, which supplies water to Trenton, parts of Hamilton, Ewing, Lawrence and Hopewell Townships, has rescheduled its Lawrence Township Public Education Forum for Wednesday, May 15 from 7-9 p.m. at the Lawrence Senior Center (photo attached), 30 Darrah Lane East.
“The TWW management team appreciates the opportunity to communicate directly with our customers,” said Dr. Shing-Fu Hsueh, Director of the city’s Department of Water and Sewer, which operates the 200-year-old Trenton Water Works. “I will be participating in our question-and-answer session on May 15, in addition to TWW’s Assistant Director, Kristin Epstein, and an engineer from our water-filtration plant talking about the water-treatment process.”
TWW’s Public Education Forums, which began in 2018, connect service-area residents directly with TWW representatives who answer questions on a variety of issues, including water quality, regulatory expectations, operations, and initiatives like the Lead Service Line Replacement Program, a $15 million capital project to replace residential lead and galvanized steel water-service lines with safer copper lines. Recent TWW Public Education Forums have been held in Trenton, Hamilton, Ewing and Hopewell.
