Camden-based New Jersey American Water said Wednesday it will replace approximately 2,700 feet of aging water main in Middletown beginning next week.
The project includes replacing 46 utility-owned service lines which entails upgrading the aging 6-inch water lines, installed as far back as the 1950s, with 8-inch ductile iron main along the following streets: Greene Avenue from Brookside Drive to Maple Avenue and Maple Avenue from Greene Avenue to Main Street.
NJAW says the investment will continue to advance water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection in this community.
Contractor J. F. Kiely Construction Co. will begin work on or about April 20 and expects to finish by the end of May, weather permitting.
This improvement is part of New Jersey American Water’s multimillion-dollar initiative to accelerate the renewal of water infrastructure that has reached the end of its useful life in more than 100 communities across the state.
