New Jersey American Water said it will invest $470,000 to replace about 1,800 feet of aging water main in Somerdale this fall and upgrade 6-inch water lines with new 8-inch ductile iron main along North and South Hilltop Avenue from West Maiden Lane to Ogg Avenue.
The company says the project includes replacing two fire hydrants and installing one new hydrant as well as replacing 42 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route.
American Water says its investment will advance water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection.
New Jersey American Water’s local, qualified contractor, Pioneer Pipe Contractors, will begin work the week of December 2 and expects to finish by the end of the year, weather permitting. Final street restorations will be completed in the spring of 2020.
