JCP&L Bringing Water, Ice For Storm Victims

Those without power or without running water can get drinking water at the recreation center, mayor says

Berkeley Township storm victims who still do not have power, and who do not have running water as a result, can get potable water at the township's recreation center on Route 9.

Mayor Carmen Amato said he asked JCP&L to bring in water supplies for those residents who still do not have power because many of them use wells to supply their homes.

"They're bringing a tractor-trailer full of water," he said.

JCP&L also will be bringing ice for those who need it later today. That will be distributed at the rec center as well.

"We're doing everything we can," Amato said.

Amato said township police officers were sent to South Seaside Park today with water and ice for residents who remain in their homes there. Police were making announcements via public address systems to let residents know the water and ice were available, he said.

The recreation center's address is 630 Atlantic City Boulevard -- which is Route 9. It is across the street from John Hill Insurance Agency, just north of Station Road.

often ignored for many, many years. south seaside park was devastated and still no mention here. when can the residents access their homes on the island? who has that answer and when. don't forget, we pay the highest taxes in the township, and should receive the highest relief monies. hey mayor, how about a fema office on the island? no mention of that. How about some water for us? How about a relief set up on the island?? no mention of that. south seaside park residents ignored again

Read the article ... Mayor sent police with water and ice. I hope you evacuated like you we're told. It's not the mayors fault if supplies can't reach you

John M I should have noted the information on South Seaside Park was an update after a followup conversation with Amato.
John M November 02, 2012 at 06:34 PM
Thanks Karen but in the bigger picture, nobody should even be there.

Do not depend on the government, get a generator when you can. Stock up on gas when the storm warning comes. Makes life so much easier.
