Camden-based New Jersey American Water will invest $1.3 million to replace about 4,780 feet of aging water main in Bradley Beach.
The public utility project includes replacing two fire hydrants and 79 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route. The utility will upgrade aging water lines, installed as far back as the 1920s and as small as 2 inches in diameter, with new, 8-inch ductile iron main along Third Avenue from Madison Avenue to Ocean Avenue; Beach Avenue from Evergreen Avenue to Third Avenue; and Hammond Avenue from Evergreen Avenue to Third Avenue.
American Water says this investment will advance water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection. This improvement is part of New Jersey American Water’s multi-million-dollar initiative to accelerate the renewal of water infrastructure that has reached the end of its useful life in more than 100 communities across New Jersey.
New Jersey American Water’s local, qualified contractor, Montana Construction Inc., will begin work on or about Friday, Feb. 14, and expects to finish by the end of March 2020.
