New Jersey American Water provides water and wastewater services for approximately 4,500 residential, business, and institutional customers in Haddonfield.
The company took over responsibility for water and wastewater services from the Borough of Haddonfield on June 1, 2015, following a decisive "yes" vote by Haddonfield residents on November 4, 2014 on the question of whether the borough should sell its water and sewer utility to NJ American Water for $28.5 million.
In a statement released on May 21, 2015 – the day the sale was completed – NJ American Water said it planed to invest approximately $6.5 million to improve Haddonfield’s water and wastewater systems during its first year of ownership, and "more than $16 million on system modernization" during the first five years.
