The company will upgrade aging water lines, installed as early as the 1920s, with new, larger ductile iron main along East Washington Avenue from Franklin Boulevard to Hampden Court, East Grant Avenue from Franklin Boulevard to Hampden Court, Chester Avenue from Grant Avenue to Milan Avenue, Hampden Court from Grant Avenue to Milan Avenue, Old Turnpike from Main Street to Madison Avenue and Penny Lane eastbound to the end of the road, Penny Lane from Old Turnpike to Ingersol Avenue, Ingersol Avenue from Franklin Boulevard eastbound to the end of the road, Charles Avenue from Franklin Boulevard eastbound to the end of the road, Madison Avenue from Brookville Terrace to Charles Avenue, and Brookville Terrace from Madison Avenue westbound to the end of the road.
The company will continue to advance water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection.
New Jersey American Water’s local, qualified contractor, Perna Finnigan Inc. began work on Monday and expects to finish by mid-April, weather permitting. Final street restorations will be completed in the fall of 2020.
