As part of the Borough’s routine maintenance of its water distribution system, the North Caldwell Water Department will inspect fire hydrants and flush water mains between 7:00pm and 11:00pm from approximately October 4, 2021 through November 4, 2021.  Flushing water mains involves the systematic opening of fire hydrants and allowing them to flow for several minutes.  Residents may experience a slight discoloration of their water following flushing.  If this occurs, it is suggested that residents run their water until it clears.  The discoloration is temporary and presents no ill health effect, but may stain laundry.  Residents are therefore advised to be sure water is clear before washing clothes.  Please direct any questions or concerns to (973) 228-6410, x-132.

Attention North Caldwell Property Owners:

Please be advised that the Borough of North Caldwell has been ordered to complete a Borough-wide revaluation of all North Caldwell properties. This program has been ordered by the Essex County Board of Taxation and approved by the State of New Jersey, Division of Taxation. In order to comply, the Borough has awarded a contract to Professional Property Appraisers to complete this work so that it can be implemented for the Tax Year 2022.

The goal of the revaluation program is to update all assessments to fair market value. To achieve this goal, all pertinent information must be accurately collected. All property owners should expect to receive a letter of introduction from Professional Property Appraisers regarding the start of field inspections.  Each representative from Professional Property Appraisers that is performing the field inspections will be registered with the North Caldwell Police Department and will be wearing a photo identification badge.

At the conclusion of the program you will be notified by mail of the assessed value established for your property. You will also be given an opportunity to discuss the new value with a representative from the appraisal company, if you so desire.

Any property owner who would like information relevant to the revaluation program should contact Professional Property Appraisers at 1-866-957-1388.

Your cooperation during the revaluation of the Borough of North Caldwell is necessary for its success. It will also ensure the most accurate assessment of your property.

** Enroll in the Borough's New Emergency Alert System **

The Borough of North Caldwell is able to send you emergency alerts via text message, email, pager, or phone call (in extreme cases), based on your preferences. These services are provided by CivicReady.  Please visit the following link (Click Here) to enroll in the new emergency alert system. It is important that you enroll through this website because your current data will not be automatically imported from the previous providers.  As such, you must enroll with CivicReady to continue receiving alerts as previous providers will be discontinued.

The system is intended to be used for emergency alerts, as well as non-emergency incidents that may have significant impacts to residents. Emergency Alerts could be related to specific hazards that require some kind of action be taken such as evacuation, shelter in place, boil water orders, etc. Non-emergency alerts could include road closures, water main breaks or significant ongoing police or fire activity. This list is not meant to be all inclusive, and demonstrates that this system will not be used for routine information. In addition to receiving information on your wireless device, you may also receive notification on your land telephone line (if you have one) depending on the type of incident or event. 

Please provide your address and preferred method(s) of contact on the above link. Adding your address will improve your personalized messages so you do not receive alerts that do not pertain to your geographical area. 

These alerts are provided free of charge, however standard text messaging rates and other charges may apply.

If you wish to subscribe to SMS text messages only, text your zip code to 38276.  There is also a mobile app available which can be downloaded from GooglePlay, the AppStore and from the registration page provided above.

Essex County, NJ – Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. announced that the CDC and FDA are recommending that residents with compromised immune systems receive a third dose, or booster shot, of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines. The County Executive said that Essex County will administer the booster shots by appointment only beginning tomorrow, August 14th at its vaccination centers at Kmart in West Orange and Essex County College in Newark. According to the CDC and FDA, people are considered to have a compromised immune system if they are fighting a disease, undergoing medical treatments or have received an organ transplant. Appointments can be made at or 973-877-8456.


“There have been reports that the CDC and FDA are going to approve booster shots for people who have received a COVID-19 vaccine. Getting vaccinated is the best choice we all can make to keep our families safe and prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, and we encourage everyone to get their shots,” DiVincenzo said. “Essex County has been administering vaccines since December 2020 and we are prepared to administer the booster shots. Just like our original vaccination process, we will administer booster shots by appointment only and we are committed to making getting a booster shot as easy and efficient as possible,” he added.


To accommodate the administration of the booster shots, the hours of operation at the Essex County Vaccination Centers at Kmart and Essex County College are being expanded to six days a week from Mondays to Saturdays. The centers will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Kmart is located at 235 Prospect Avenue in West Orange; Essex County College is located at 177 West Market Street in Newark.


Booster shots WILL NOT be available at the mobile clinics or pop-up sites organized by Essex County.


Essex County opened its vaccination centers on December 26, 2020, and was the first county in New Jersey to open a vaccination center. Since then, it has administered 184,910 first doses of Moderna, 181,402 second doses of Moderna, 7,217 first doses of Pfizer, 5,559 second doses of Pfizer and 15,903 doses of J&J vaccines.
