The City completed the Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water treatment Facility in 1998. The treatment of removing salt from our water wells to produce potable drinking water to our customers and surrounding neighbors has been a very successful endeavor. We are the first facility in our State and surrounding region to do this for our customers.

In the Administrative office, which is located on the second floor in City Hall, we handle all communications that our customers might have. James Wolfe handles questions about water/sewer bills, meters, water consumption, water pressure and anything related to water meters. The City of Cape May has over 3,800 water accounts. Water and sewer payments are paid at the tax office.

Mr. Carl Behrens, Chief Water Treatment Plant Operator/Supervisor is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the RO plant. He also handles water quality questions our customers might have.  Our Water Distribution, Metering and Sewer Collection has a crew of four (4) employees.

Covid-19 Notice


 The following is an excerpt from a recent publication from the Governor’s Office and the Offices of the NJ Department of Environmental Protection, The NJ Department of Community Affairs and the NJ Board of Public Utilities.


 As we all know, the provision of water is an essential public service, especially now.

Critical for both our health and personal hygiene, consistent access to safe water is especially vital to New Jersey’s response to the unprecedented public health emergency created by the spread by COVID-19.

Frequent and vigorous handwashing is critical in limiting the spread of COVID-19 and all New Jerseyans should have confidence that water will be available when they open the tap to wash their hands. Access to clean water is also an important part of many other health and hygiene functions as we all work to protect public health. At a time where many services that we may take for granted are temporarily unavailable, New Jerseyans deserve the comfort and continuity of uninterrupted water service.

It is incumbent upon each of us in government and industry to keep water flowing into every home and business during this crisis.

Accordingly, the City of Cape May Water/Sewer Department is hereby suspending all water service shut offs for reason of non-payment.

Please, for the duration of this difficult and unprecedented time, observe proper social distancing, stay home and away from the public as much as possible and wash your hands frequently. We, at the City of Cape May Water/Sewer Department are here and will be here for you to ensure uninterrupted service.

Remember, “If you don’t get it, you cant spread it?”
