New Jersey American Water is investing $2.3 million to replace about 11,300 feet of aging water mains in Haddonfield and Haddon Heights beginning this week, and $275,000 in Ocean Grove later this season.
The utility says the Haddonfield and Haddon Heights project includes replacing 19 fire hydrants and 230 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route. The utility says it will upgrade aging water lines that were installed as far back as the late 1700s, with new, larger ductile iron main along the following streets:
- West Redman Avenue from approximately 768 Redman Avenue to Linden Avenue in Haddonfield
- Peyton Avenue from West Redman Avenue to Woodland Avenue in Haddonfield
- Linden Avenue from Kings Highway to Elm Avenue in Haddonfield
- First Avenue from Garden Street to Chews Landing Road in Haddon Heights
- Crest Avenue from Mansfield Avenue to Chews Landing Road in Haddon Heights
- Garden Street from First Avenue to Crest Avenue in Haddon Heights
New Jersey American Water’s local, qualified contractor, Pioneer Pipe Contractors Inc., will begin work on or about Feb. 6 and expects to finish by the end of May.
New Jersey American Water will also replace about 1,150 feet of aging 4-inch water main in Ocean Grove this winter.
The utility will upgrade aging water lines, installed in the 1920s, with new, 8-inch ductile iron main along Bath Avenue from Pilgrim Pathway to Beach Avenue. The project includes replacing 19 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route.
This $275,000 investment will continue to advance water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection in this community. New Jersey American Water’s local, qualified contractor, J. F. Kiely Service Co., will begin work in Ocean Grove on or about Feb. 15 and expects to finish by the first week of April 2020.
