Well #10 Construction Notice
Beginning on Monday, October 4th, 2010, the Borough of Seaside Park will begin drilling a replacement well on Decatur Avenue between Lake Avenue and North Bayview Avenue.
The drilling process itself will take approximately 6 to 8 weeks. This work must be done and we know there will be inconveniences along the way. There will be disturbance to the lot on Decatur Avenue in proximity to the water tower and current wellhouse. There will also be a short time when work will last 24 hrs. We apologize for any and all inconveniences. We will try to keep this to a minimum.
Please call Joseph Walker at 732-793-5100 ext 302 if you have any questions or concerns.
Tips for saving water inside your home
Bathroom use accounts for about 75 percent of the water used inside the home.
- Check regularly for any leaks in your toilet, faucets and water hose bibs and fix them.
- Install a low-flow showerhead.
- Replace older, larger-use toilets with the newer higher efficiency toilets.
- Take short showers and save the baths for special occasions.
About 8 percent of in-home water use takes place in the kitchen.
- Wash only full loads in the dishwasher. An efficient dishwasher usually uses much less water than washing dishes by hand.
- Install a low-flow faucet aerator, which can cut water use in half.
- When buying a new dishwasher, consider purchasing a water-saving model. (New models use up to 25 percent less water than older ones.)
Around the house
- Wash only full loads in the clothes washer. Washing small loads uses over twice as much water per pound of laundry.
- When buying a new clothes washer, consider purchasing a water-saving model.
- Insulate hot water pipes where possible to avoid long delays (and wasted water) while waiting for the water to “run hot.” When building a new home, keep the distance short between the hot water heater and showers and other places that hot water is used.

Pet Waste and What You Can Do.
Clean and plentiful water is important to our families, our environment, our economy and our quality of life.
Did you know that animal waste from pets can pollute our waters? When left on the ground, pet waste is washed by rain and melting snow and ice into storm drains that carry it to our rivers, lakes, the ocean and drinking water.
Animal waste contains a high concentration of nutrients as well as bacteria and disease-causing microorganisms that can cause problems.
What you can do
Pet owners or anyone who takes your pet for walks must properly dispose of the waste by picking it up, wrapping it and either placing it in the trash or flushing it unwrapped down the toilet.
Your municipality is required to adopt and enforce local pet-waste laws. At a minimum, your community must require that pet owners or their keepers immediately and properly dispose of their pet’s solid waste deposited on any public or private property not owned or possessed by that person.
People with assistance animals such as Seeing Eye dogs are exempt.
Make sure you know what your municipality requires – and follow it.
