The source of East Brunswick's water is the Round Valley-Spruce Run Reservoir System in Hunterdon County. The township purchases the "raw" water under contract from the NJ Water Supply Authority. The reservoir's water is then pumped into the Delaware and Raritan Canal where it mixes with Delaware River water. It then flows to the Middlesex Water Company intake at the north edge of New Brunswick. Water is treated and pumped to East Brunswick under contract with Middlesex Water Company in Edison at their new $40 million state-of-the-art treatment plant.
