For the first time in decades, the Borough of Cape May Point is installing new water meters. This is a major construction project, but will result in substantial benefits to you and the Borough’s public water utility. Over the past three years, there have been over 70 major water leaks impacting both residents and owners. Water is expensive and the leaks have been very inconvenient. Our goal is to improve the financial stability of the Utility while improving the service to you. The new automated meters have been purchased with a leak detection component and there is no charge to you for these new meters as we are paying for them by improving operational efficiencies, paying down high interest bond debt, refinancing current high interest bonds, and decreasing our water usage.
As with any major construction project, there will be hiccups. Should you encounter any problems with your water service, you may contact the plumbing contractor directly (24/7) at the following numbers:
