In 2005, the Kearny water department replaced (or is replacing as we speak) water mains on King Street, Schuyler Court, Devon Terrace and Washington AVenue among others. That's some 4,500 linear feet of 8 inch diameter water main pipe, 45 water valves, 90 house service lines and 30 new fire hydrants in the past year alone. Major repairs were also completed on the town's water transmission line under the Passaic River.

In the 2005 fiscal year, the Kearny Water Department collected 4,754,008 from water billing, which includes 327,000 from water sales to Cedar Grove. That's all actual cash that came in. That covered all expenses of the water utility, albeit with no room to spare.

Here's one amazing thought to ponder: Kearny has the LOWEST water rates in this region AND can operate its water department in the black AND at the same time make major improvements to its water system.

Kudos to all those responsible for this!

What BS,you make it sound like your doing all this on profits from water sales. Your bonding to repair the system and how much will that cost the tax payers. Yes Kudos for your abilityto BS.

Interesting. Refusal to acknowledge or even address any of the facts as presented. What an immature response. It's the equivalent of a child bully who's been out-smarted.

Then lets present the question this way, Is the KWD bonding for repairs or is the Dept. doing the repairs with the profits from water sales? Now please answer the question. I'm not concerned with your pulp fiction. OK H.R.? YOUR SO ORIGINAL.

Re-read the original thread. Again, the bonding is for capital improvements (repairing or replacing hydrants, water mains and the transmission line). Water sales are current revenue that cover current expenses, not capital expenses.

I don't understand the "original" remark but I will admit that Uma Thurman and John Travolta were awesome in Pulp Fiction.

Since we have been selling water do we have a surplus of money from current sales? And yes that was a good movie almost as entertaining as your posts.
