VOORHEES, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Jersey American Water will be investing $4 million in new water
mains in its service area of Loch Arbour, Asbury Park and Allenhurst.
The approximate 11,000 feet of new pipe replaces water main that was
installed as far back as the 1900s. The aging water lines will be
replaced with ductile iron pipes.
New Jersey American Water's qualified contractor, CRJ Contracting Corp.
began the project on July 31 on the following streets:
Route 71 (Main Street), from Main Avenue to Park Avenue
Edgemont Drive, from Ocean Avenue to Route 71 (Norwood Avenue)
Route 71 (Norwood Avenue), from Edgemont Drive to Cedar Avenue
"With the installation of the new water mains, our customers in this
area should experience increased water flows for residences and fire
protection, and continued improvement in reliability," stated Mark
Fitzpatrick, New Jersey American Water Project Manager Engineer. "These
water main improvements are part of New Jersey American Water's
multimillion dollar program to accelerate the renewal
of water infrastructure that is reaching the end of its useful life."
Fitzpatrick added that this project is being coordinated with the New
Jersey Department of Transportation so that the main replacements are
completed ahead of their scheduled pavement resurfacing project
beginning in January 2018. Scheduled work will be completed at night,
Monday through Thursday from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. New Jersey American Water
values the safety of its workers and advises drivers and pedestrians to
