NJ-AMERICAN WATER COMPANY RECEIVES WATER ALLOCATION PERMIT FOR TRI-COUNTY WATER SUPPLY PROJECT

 HADDON HEIGHTS, N.J., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) has approved a water allocation permit for New Jersey-American Water Company's (NJAW) Tri-County Water Supply Project.
 The permit allows NJAW to withdraw water from the Delaware River at a monthly average of 40 million gallons per day. The permit was approved unanimously at a regular meeting of the DRBC held in Wilmington, Del., on Sept. 22.
 The DRBC permit follows similar approval for the withdrawal of Delaware River water issued by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and Energy on June 9, 1993.
 "The issuance of this permit is another important milestone for the Tri-County Water Supply Project," said Daniel L. Kelleher, president of New Jersey-American Water Company.
 "The DRBC's allocation permit will allow New Jersey-American Water to provide the region with an adequate supply of high quality water."
 The Tri-County Water Supply Project is being built by New Jersey- American Water Company to bring additional water to areas of Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties. Water will be taken from the Delaware River, treated in a state-of-the-art filtration plant in Delran, and then pumped to water utilities in the three counties through approximately 40 miles of pipeline. The project will be in operation by the end of 1995.
 New Jersey-American Water Company serves approximately 1 million people in 113 municipalities in 14 of the state's 21 counties. In the local area, the company provides water service to 87,000 customer accounts in 34 Burlington and Camden county communities.
