About Your Water
United Water prides itself on meeting and exceeding all regulatory expectations for drinking water.
United Water Rahway customers receive their water from the east and west branches of the Rahway River. The Rahway River Watershed comprises over 40 square miles encompassing such densely populated municipalities as Orange, Maplewood, Irvington, Union, Cranford and Clark.
On a typical day, we pump 5.5 million gallons of purified water to about 26,500 residents.
We take great pride in our ability to provide you with drinking water that meets or surpasses all state and federal standards. We constantly monitor the quality of drinking water—before, during and after the purification process. In fact, we perform 15,000 tests on 3,200 water samples each year. We report the results to state and federal agencies.
Our annual Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) provides detailed information about your water quality.
