History

Aqua New Jersey was created through the merger of several individual water companies previously owned by the former Consumers Water Company of Portland, Maine in the early 1960s. In 1969, Consumers merged The Peoples Water Company of Phillipsburg, the Hamilton Square Water Company and the Blackwood Water Company to create the Garden State Water Company. In 1995, after having acquired several other local water companies, Garden State changed its name to Consumers New Jersey Water Company (CNJ). 

In 1999, the Woolwich Water Company and Woolwich Sewer Company were purchased and merged into the company. In March 1999, CNJ’s parent company, Consumers Water Company, merged with Philadelphia Suburban Corporation (PSC). In January 2004, PSC changed its name to Aqua America, Inc. and changed the name of CNJ to Aqua. Several small system acquisitions were made during this time, expanding Aqua’s expertise into Sussex and Monmouth counties. 

In November 2005, Aqua acquired the assets of the Berkeley Water Company, the company’s first venture into Ocean County.

In July 2009, Aqua acquired the Lawrenceville Water Company in Lawrence Township, expanding the company’s existing footprint in Mercer County. Later that year, in November, Aqua acquired the assets of the Harkers Hollow Heights Water Association, a small community water system serving a portion of Harmony Township and Lopatcong Township in Warren County.

In March 2010, Aqua acquired the assets of the Bloomsbury Borough Water Utility in Hunterdon County, which is the first municipal acquisition in New Jersey in the company’s history. In November 2010, Aqua acquired the assets of Vernon Water Company in Vernon Township. In December 2010, Aqua acquired the Wallkill Water & Sewer Company in Hardyston Township.

Aqua New Jersey’s corporate offices are located in Hamilton Township, Mercer County, New Jersey.
