New Jersey American Water Investing $4.4 Million in Essex County

New Jersey American Water began work this month on two water
infrastructure improvements, investing $4.4 million within its service
areas of Millburn and West Orange. The approximate 8,640 feet of new
pipe replaces water main that has reached the end of its useful life and
will be replaced with new ductile iron pipes.

New Jersey American Water’s qualified contractor Montana Construction
will begin work next week in West Orange, weather permitting, replacing
approximately 1,640 feet of aging 6-inch main that was installed in the
1950s with new 8-inch ductile iron main along Porter Road, from
Pleasant Valley Way to end of the roadway. Work hours will be from 7:30
a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

In addition, New Jersey American Water’s qualified contractor Vollers
Excavating & Construction, Inc. this month will begin to replace
approximately 7,000 feet of aging 24-inch water main that was installed
in the 1910s with new 30-inch ductile iron main along Parsonage Hill
Road, from White Oak Ridge Road to Old Short Hills Road. In
addition, Vollers Excavating & Construction be installing a new 8-inch
main along Parsonage Hill Road, from Long Hill Drive to Denman
Court, that will run parallel to the 30-inch main, and customers along
that section of road will be connected to the new 8-inch main. Work
hours will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Construction on weekends and after hours is not expected for either
project unless required to maintain project schedule and both projects
should be completed by the end of December. Final street restoration in
West Orange will be completed in the fall of 2018 and final street
restoration in Millburn will be completed by Essex County in the summer
of 2018.

“New Jersey American Water places a high value on our proactive
replacement program, as it helps us improve water quality and service
and makes our systems more resilient to potential disruptions in the
future,” stated Tom Shroba, senior director, North Operations. “These
projects in Millburn and West Orange are a continuation of the critical
investment for the company to provide our customers with safe, reliable
water service. By constantly upgrading our infrastructure, we’re
planning to keep it that way,”
