Camden-based New Jersey American Water announced Tuesday it will invest $978,000 to replace about 2,060 feet of aging water main in Irvington beginning this week.
The company says the project includes replacing five fire hydrants and 72 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route. The company will upgrade the aging water lines, installed in the 1910s, with new ductile iron main along Mill Road from Union Avenue to Stuyvesant Avenue, and McAllister Place from Paine Avenue to the end of the road.
NJAW says it will continue to advance water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection in this community. This improvement is part of New Jersey American Water’s multimillion-dollar initiative to accelerate the renewal of water infrastructure that has reached the end of its useful life in more than 100 communities.
Montana Construction Inc. will begin work this week and expects to finish by the end of April.
