Hawthorne Borough recently closed on a $5,000,000 loan with the NJ Water Bank to address excessive levels of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances ("PFAS"). This group of chemicals is commonly used in a wide range of industrial processes and is found in many consumer products. PFAS can penetrate the water supply and affect drinking water quality. This project includes the construction of ion exchange resin systems for the removal of PFAS at the four existing pump stations in the Borough at which they were detected above maximum contaminant levels (MCLs). The proposed water treatment systems will be comprised of two vessels containing an an ion exchange resin and are designed to remove PFAS. The proposed improvements will remove contaminants from the treated water ensuring that the drinking water supply remains under the MCLs for PFAS. Each of the proposed systems will work in tandem with the existing treatment devices.
