The Borough of Stone Harbor diligently strives to provide consumers with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. The Water Department is supervised by the Public Works Department and a Water & Sewer Committee of Borough Council. Water and sewer rents are collected at Borough Hall, 9508 Second Avenue, Stone Harbor. Stone Harbor’s water is pumped by four wells from a fresh water supply at a depth of 890 feet in a geological formation known as the Kirkwood Aquifer. After being pumped from the ground, Stone Harbor’s water is aerated to remove hydrogen sulfide. It is stored in a 65,000 gallon underground reservoir, and then pumped into the 500,000 gallon elevated water tank, which stands 133 feet above ground level at 95th Street near Second Avenue. Water pressure is maintained at approximately 52 pounds per square inch, and is disinfected with calcium hypochlorite in accordance with DEP and EPA standards . The drinking water is then distributed through approximately 150,000 feet of pipe to over 3,000 customer accounts throughout the Borough . All water supplied to consumers is measured by water meters, which are electronically read quarterly and regularly maintained for accuracy. Stone Harbor has an interconnection with the water system of the Borough of Avalon for emergency use. Consumers and citizens having any questions or needing any further information on the water system are welcome to contact Craig Loper at Public Works 609-368-7311.
