The Borough supplies water to approximately 3,214 customers. The Borough's water supply consists of four groundwater wells maintained by the DPW - Water Department. Wells are located at Beattie Lane, Valley Road, Brooksyde Avenue, and Cannici Drive.

The Borough’s Water Operator can be reached at (973) 475-7133.

Water and Sewer payments must be made payable to RINGWOOD WATER DEPARTMENT. For billing questions, please call (973) 475-7116.

Final readings for water should be called in in advance of the closing date in order to allow enough time for the reading to be properly scheduled.


PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the Ringwood Water Department will be flushing water mains throughout the Borough Monday through Friday during the weeks of April 19 – April 23 and April 26 – April 29. The hours of flushing will begin at 9:00 A.M. and end at 5:00 P.M. Some discoloration and lowered pressure may be experienced during this period. Homeowners are advised to turn the water off at the valve where the water enters the house from the outside service line. This will prevent air from re-entering the line during the flushing process.

TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that flushing will take place at various locations according to the following schedule and could affect other roads without hydrants. Questions may be directed to the Department of Public Works at (973-475-7133).
