GROUNDWATER MONITORING PROGRAM (HPW TWP)

The Township of Hopewell, Mercer County retained M2 Associates in May 2000
to conduct an evaluation of the groundwater resources of the Township.
The Township of Hopewell requested the groundwater resource evaluation
because of the primary source of drinking water for Township residents is
groundwater. Water is supplied to these residents from individual wells
completed in fractured bedrock aquifers.
