Passaic Valley Water Commission Customers:
On Saturday, May 21,2022, at 4:11pm Woodland Park Mayor Keith Kazmark notified Passaic Valley Water Commission’s (PVWC) Executive Director Jim Mueller that the Woodland Park Police Department received a report of a juvenile missing in the Great Notch Reservoir. Woodland Park first responders, Fire Departments from Clifton, Passaic, Paterson and other neighboring towns, as well as PVWC staff responded. A search was conducted until nightfall and continued early this morning at 8:30 am.
Sunday, May 22nd, at approximately 10:00 am, Passaic County Sheriff’s Department divers located the body of the 15-year-old Paterson resident. The investigation into what led to this tragic incident will continue in the coming days. Out of respect and privacy of the family we will not be releasing the name of the individual.
The Passaic Valley Water Commission family sends its deepest condolences to the family of the teenager. We thank all first responders who worked diligently and tirelessly during this tragic incident.
PVWC continues to ensure the quality of drinking water through sampling and monitoring in partnership with NJ Department of Environmental Protection.
