Camden-based New Jersey American Water announced Monday it will invest $589,000 to replace about 1,320 feet of aging water main in Roselle Park. Earlier in February, the utility announced a $357,000 investment in the Union County township.
The company will upgrade aging 6-inch water lines with 12-inch ductile iron main along Seaton Avenue from Faitoute Avenue to Laurel Avenue. The project includes replacing three fire hydrants and 44 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route.
American Water says the investment will continue to advance water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection. The company says the 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.
Montana Construction Inc. will begin work this week and expects to finish by the end of March, weather permitting.
