Storm Update - Wednesday, July 24, 2019

Remaining Outages

Information from PSE&G from Wednesday morning indicates that 331 customers (or less than 1 percent) out of the 42,747 customers served in Hamilton Township remain without power at this time.  

Restoration Efforts

Restoration efforts continue to be performed by PSE&G. Power restoration estimates from PSE&G anticipate restorations to be completed between today and tomorrow.  

Hamilton Township Department of Public Works personnel have, and continue, to assist PSE&G by clearing fallen tree debris that has impacted public roads or right-of-way areas that might impact restoration efforts.


Due to the severity of this storm and to assist residents as much as possible, Hamilton Township has temporarily relaxed the normal requirements that fallen tree limbs and branches to be cut, tied and bundled. Therefore, residents are asked to place any limbs, branches or brush along road curbsides if they can safely do so.

Department of Public Works crews will continue to remove curbside brush all across our town. Due to the volume of brush and the size of our community, curbside storm brush collection efforts will continue over the next several weeks. Areas will be prioritize based upon the impact to roads/vehicular traffic.

We thank all residents for their continued patience during this lengthy process.

Storm Recovery Efforts Prioritized

Storm-related recovery efforts will continue to be prioritized. While many routine Township services will still continue to be performed, some scheduled projects that would be performed by the same Department of Public Works crews that are clearing storm brush during this emergency recovery effort may be delayed over the coming weeks.

Continued Caution

STAY AWAY FROM ALL DOWNED LINES.   Residents should report downed power lines/wires to PSE&G directly at 1-800-436 -7734 (or PSEG) and provide the nearest cross street of the downed line/wire.
