Director of Public Works: Mr. Duane Paul Pheasant
Hours: Monday – Friday 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM
Location: Washington and Bernard Avenues
The Public Works Department is primarily responsible for water and sewer operations, maintenance of streets and roads, repair and rehabilitiation of Borough facilities, and maintenance of Borough parks and sports fields.
As the Borough has its own water distribution system, a significant portion of the department’s workload involves ensuring water quality meets all state and federal regulations, installing new connections, repairing existing water mains, reading water meters, and assisting with water/sewer billing and collections.
While the Borough is a member of the Gloucester County Utilities Authority for sewer services, the Department remains responsible for maintaining sewer lift stations, handling sewer backups, and addressing drainange issues.
The Recycling Coordinator works in this Department and is responsible for working with the trash/recycling company, Casworth Enterprises, to ensure all current regulations for recycling are enforced.
