TRENTON - On Wednesday, Aug. 25, at 10:30 a.m., the Department of Environmental Protection will hold a public hearing at the Millburn Free Library to review current water supply conditions in the State, and especially five Northeastern counties, and obtain public input regarding available water supply management options.The DEP has determined that a potentially critical water supply situation could develop in the Northeast region, including all or parts of Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Morris and Passaic counties. A Drought Watch is now in effect in that region.
