Camden-based New Jersey American Water will invest $380,000 to replace about 2,000 feet of aging 2-inch water main in Lindenwold beginning next week.
The company says the project includes replacing two fire hydrants and 30 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route.
It plans to upgrade the water lines, installed in the 1970s, with new 8-inch ductile iron main along Pinegrove Avenue from West Park Avenue to Wallace Avenue; Monroe Avenue from Pinegrove Avenue to Chews Landing Road; Wallace Avenue from Pinegrove Avenue to Chews Landing Road; and the Parker Avenue and Pinegrove Avenue intersection.
Contractor, Perna Finnigan Inc., will begin work on or about March 10 and expects to finish by the end of May.
American Water says this investment will continue to advance water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection as part of its 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. Earlier this week, the company announced $3.1 million in investments across three different townships.
