The Middlesex Water Company owns and operates regulated water utility and wastewater systems in portions of the Lower Raritan Watershed, and operates wastewater systems under contract on behalf of several Lower Raritan Watershed communities. Water is provided under wholesale contracts to Edison, the Borough of Highland Park and the Old Bridge Municipal Utilities Authority. Retail customers are located in Woodbridge Township, the City of South Amboy, the Borough of Metuchen, portions of Edison and the Borough of South Plainfield. Contract sales to Edison, Old Bridge and Marlboro are supplemental to the existing water systems in those towns. Middlesex is the sole source of water for Highland Park and East Brunswick.

The principal source of surface water for the Middlesex Water Company’s system is the Delaware & Raritan Canal, which is owned by the State of NJ and operated as a water resource by the New Jersey Water Supply Authority (NJWSA). The Middlesex Water Company is under contract with NJWSA.
