New Jersey American Water on Nov. 1 said that as part of its multimillion-dollar initiative to accelerate the renewal of water infrastructure which has reached the end of its useful life in more than 100 communities across the state, it will rehabilitate approximately 3,500 feet of aging 60-inch transmission main in South Plainfield this fall.
According to American Water, this $12 million investment will continue to advance water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection in this community.
The Camden-based company said it will employ a technique that involves lining the pipe with carbon fiber along Wooden Avenue from Beatrice Place to Metuchen Road.
The project also includes the reconstruction of existing manholes and valve pits along the pipeline route.
New Jersey American Water’s local, qualified contractor, Schilke Construction Co., will begin work early November and expects to finish by April 2020, weather permitting.
