Overdue accounts at Passaic Valley Water in New Jersey will be closed
More than five months after the lifting of the two-year COVID-era moratorium on utility shutdowns in New Jersey, the Passaic Valley Water Commission is advising customers that service disruption for overdue accounts is on the point to resume.
The utility said Friday that closings would begin again on Monday, August 22, and late fees and notice penalties would also return.
PVWC acknowledged that the pandemic has impacted New Jerseyans “mentally, physically, spiritually and financially” and asked those experiencing financial hardship to contact its customer service about the possibility of setting up a interest-free payment plan that would avoid service interruption. .
This number is 973-340-4300.
The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs also offers a water assistance program for low-income households.
PVWC said it informed customers of the impending potential closures via messages on bills and on social media.
According to its website, the Passaic Valley Water Commission serves Clifton, Lodi, North Arlington, Passaic, Paterson, Prospect Park, part of Woodland Park, and wholesale customers in Passaic, Bergen, Essex, and Morris counties.
All plans and payment options are available on the PVWC website.
