Water Treatment Change
As part of a maintenance program for the water distribution system, New Jersey American Water will temporarily change the water treatment process at its Swimming River Water Treatment Plant in Colts Neck and its Jumping Brook Water Treatment Plant in Neptune from chloramines (a combination of ammonia and chlorine) to free chlorine.
The treatment change will begin the week of January 19, 2015 and last through April. During this period, customers may notice a slight increase in the taste and smell of chlorine in their water. This is normal and will only be temporary until the system maintenance is complete. New Jersey American Water will continuously monitor water quality to ensure that it meets or surpasses federal and state drinking water standards.

Dates to Remember...
Welcome to the Borough of Interlaken
Interlaken is a small, quiet community of single family homes on tree-lined streets.
There is no commercial district or business district. Interlaken is a purely residential community of just over 395 residences, and a total population of approximately 820.
Named for a small town in Switzerland, between the lakes, Interlaken is bordered on the north and south by arms of Deal Lake. A quiet respite near ocean beaches and shopping.
