Water Line Protection Program

Are you prepared for a Water Line Emergency? Most residents are unaware that they are responsible for repairs to the water line that runs from the street into their home. Did you know that you can protect yourself against costs associated with broken water lines? Replacing a water line can cost thousands of dollars! The WATER LINE PROTECTION PROGRAM (WLPP) is a simple and affordable way to protect residents. The program costs $89.95 per year for most single family residences.* *Note, your home and water line will be inspected by representatives of the Borough of Madison before service is approved. Service can be denied. Alternatively, the fee for service may be increased for larger, longer or more difficult services. For more information about the WLLP and to download an application, visit: https://gov.rosenet.org/agencies/water/pages/water-line-protection-program

Water Restrictions Announced

The Borough of Madison has announced water restrictions. Residents are asked to take indoor conservation measures. Outdoor water restrictions are also in effect. Permitted use will be on an even-odd system, meaning water can only be used on even-numbered days for residents or businesses whose dwelling, building or box numbers are also even, and on odd-numbered days for their counterparts. Watering is only be allowed from midnight to 8 a.m. and then from 8 p.m. to midnight on those days where use is permitted. Thank you for your help in conserving water.
