Welcome To Northfield

Mayor Jerry McGeeThe City of Northfield is a suburban community located in Atlantic County, New Jersey. The city comprises an area of 3.5 square miles lying approximately seven miles to the west of Atlantic City and is bounded by the municipalities of Pleasantville, Linwood, and Egg Harbor Township.

As Mayor of Northfield it gives me great pleasure to welcome visitors to our informative website.  I encourage each person to take advantage of this site to learn about our town.  Our employees work hard to provide services to our residents that are second to none.  The governing body plays an important role in maintaining these services and are accessible to the constituents they serve.  We hope the website provides the opportunity to offer insight and perhaps answer any questions about our great community.

New Jersey American Water is aware that several areas throughout Northfield have been experiencing discolored water. Some areas have experienced it more frequently than others. The company apologizes for the inconvenience this issue has caused our customers in Northfield and we want to assure residents that we are working hard to resolve this. The company is completing a series of actions to help us identify the cause of the discoloration and lead us to a solution. These actions include inspecting valves, surveying hydrants, reviewing water quality testing
results, and collecting other data from our system. We are also making changes to our water production facilities.

While we continue to work to address this issue, we want to assure residents that our routine system monitoring does not indicate a health risk. We advise customers to run the cold faucet in your kitchen for a few minutes or until the color has cleared before consuming.

We thank our customers for their patience and we look forward to delivering a solution to rid them of this inconvenience.
