City Water Supply – March 13, 2014 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – In a proactive move, and as a result of a voluntary, precautionary test performed by Solvay Solexus, a West Deptford based chemical company, the City of Woodbury will temporarily not utilize one of their five (5) active wells used for the public water supply.  Solvay, in conjunction with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, recently began similar tests in some surrounding communities as a result of the possible contamination of the water supply by their facility.  The results found in one of the City’s wells was less than what was found in other municipalities, but nonetheless the City is taking pre-emptive action and gathering more information from our entire water supply system to ensure the highest level of public safety.   The City’s water supply is, as it always has been, in full compliance with all federal and state regulations and health standards.  Read full press release here

The historic City of Woodbury is a great place to live, work, visit and own a business. Our blend of Colonial and Victoria era homes, natural parks & waterways make this one of Southern New Jersey’s gems. We also have well-regarded public schools with small class sizes and reasonable property values.

As the County Seat of Gloucester County and home to Inspira, formerly known as Underwood-Memorial Hospital, Woodbury is one of the region’s employment centers.  For business investors, we can offer Tax Abatement incentives in our ambitious Broad Street (Route 45) redevelopment corridor.
