What We Do
The East Greenwich Public Water & Sewer Department is responsible for delivering quality water to homes within the water service areas of the town.

Some homes in East Greenwich have well or septic systems which are privately owned, inspected and maintained by the home owner.
Water / Sewer Problems
If you have a public water or sewer issue, contact the Township before you call a private plumber. They may be able to eliminate the problem or tell you if a plumber is necessary.
Call Before You Dig
Caution: Before digging on you property state law mandates that you call for a “mark out” of public utilities in the area. This is for personal as well as property safety.
Water Conservation Ordinance
*** Permanent Water Conservation Ordinance is in Effect*** Lawn/vegetation watering with sprinklers is permitted every other day at any time according to you house number. If you have an even address you may water your lawn or other vegetation on even calendar days. If you have an odd house number you may water your lawn or other vegetation on odd calendar days. New Seed/Sod: Newly seeded or sodded lawns are exempt from the odd / even restrictions and may be watered at any time for 14 days. Homeowner must register with the water department before watering.
These restrictions have been enacted due to lack of water pressure and volume caused by well-pumping restrictions imposed by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection.
The sewer department provides public sewer service to homes within the sanitary sewer service areas of the town. Some homes in East Greenwich have well or septic systems which are privately owned, inspected and maintained by the home owner.
