Camden-based New Jersey American Water will invest $942,000 to replace about 2,640 feet of aging 4-inch and 6-inch water main in Middle Township beginning March 24.
The company says the project includes replacing four fire hydrants and 62 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route. The company will upgrade water lines, installed as far back as the 1940s, with new 8-inch and 12-inch ductile iron main along Mechanic Street from Poplar Street to Hamann Avenue, Goshen Road from Church Street to Mechanic Street, and Dias Creek Road from Hand Avenue to Mechanic Street.
Perna Finnigan Inc. will begin work on or about March 24 and expects to be completed by early June.
The company says it is continuing to 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 the state.
