New Jersey American Water on Wednesday announced it will replace approximately 8,000 feet of aging water main in Mendham Borough during summer 2019.
The $2.8 million investment will continue to advance water service reliability and increase water flow for household consumption and fire protection.
This project will take place along Hilltop Road from Main Street to Bernardsville Road/Pleasant Valley Road.
The Camden-based company said it will upgrade the water lines that were installed as far back as the 1930s, with larger, ductile iron main. 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 across the state.
New Jersey American Water’s local contractor, Lodi-based Montana Construction, will begin work the week of May 27, and expects to finish by the end of August, weather permitting. Work hours will be at night from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., Monday through Friday. Final street restorations will be completed by Morris County in September 2019.
