DEP Tips On Encounters With Black Bears
NOTICE TO RESIDENTS:
Some residents have heard about the proposal/request of Pilgrim Pipeline to utilize the PSE&G right of way for the construction/installation of a pipeline. If approved, the pipeline would apparently run from Albany, NY to Linden. We have been advised that some residents close to the PSE&G easement might have received a letter from either Pilgrim or PSE&G providing details of the proposed plan. If you or any resident that you might be aware of may have received any communication of this nature, please ask them to send a copy to Borough Hall either by e-mail to TAtkins@watchungnj.gov or regular mail. You can also contact Borough Hall at (908)-756-0080. Thank you.

Attention: JCP&L Customers:
A new outage communication tool is available!
JCP&L has a new enhanced 24/7 Power Center online outage map, available
at www.jcp-l.com. It displays individual outages, with best-available estimated restoration times, as well as the cause of the service disruption. Click on "My Town" when you enter this link.
Visit www.firstendergycorp.com/connet for information on how to connect directly to JCP&L with your mobile tools.
An Important Message from PSE&G:
We've heard your calls for better communication and made some significant changes there, too. We've ramped up our pre-storm messaging across all channels, with a focus on helping you understand what to expect from an event, how you can prepare and stay safe, and how you can best communicate with us. We launched MyAlerts, which allows our customers to opt in for text messages as well as email notifications about outages in their area and service restoration. We urge all our customers to sign up for MyAlerts (http://www.pseg.com/myalerts) and to update contact information with us now, before the next storm hits. Meanwhile, more communications upgrades are on the way. By this spring, customers will be able to report outages via text message, too. And, very soon, customers will be able to get localized outage information online and through their smart phones
The Borough is looking for residents who are willing to work on our volunteer boards.
