Riverton Borough, Riverton, NJ,
established in 1851, is located on the Delaware River. With
its sidewalks, gas lamps and victorian flavor, the town
has maintained a charm through the decades by the ever-present
care and volunteer spirit that its residents possess.
Riverton is home to the Riverton
Yacht Club. One of the oldest and still active yacht clubs
in the country. Many resident's sailboats make their home
at this wonderful landmark. Downtown, the new Riverline
Light Rail system has contributed to a resurgence in public
transportation. The Riverline offers daily service shuttling
travelers between metro Camden and Trenton with connections
to Philadelphia and New York City.

NOTICE: WINTER STORM JONAS PREPARATION
The Borough of Riverton Police Department, Department of Public Works along with the Borough’s Fire Department have been working together to prepare for winter storms.
Park your vehicles on the odd side of the road to assist in street plowing. Once the odd side has been plowed, you can move your vehicle(s) over to the even side allowing the road crew to finish the plowing.
Keep the curb line clear of garbage cans; branches, portable basketball nets, and vehicles.
Consider shoveling out your driveway out after your street plowing has been completed. It cannot be helped that plowing area roadways will cause snow to blow driveways, at times. Please do not shovel snow back into the street after it has been plowed.
Walkways must be shoveled within 24 hours of the end of the snowfall.
Contact PSEG directly to report a power outage (800)-436-7734
