American Water invests $4m for new water mains in Loch Arbour, Asbury Park & Allenhurst

Published 22 August 2017

American Water is investing $4m in new water mains across its service areas in Loch Arbour, Asbury Park and Allenhurst, in the US state of New Jersey.

The approximate 11,000 feet of new pipe replaces water main that was installed as far back as the 1900s. The aging water lines will be replaced with ductile iron pipes. New Jersey American Water's qualified contractor, CRJ Contracting Corp. began the project on July 31 on the following streets:

Route 71 (Main Street), from Main Avenue to Park Avenue

Edgemont Drive, from Ocean Avenue to Route 71 (Norwood Avenue)

Route 71 (Norwood Avenue), from Edgemont Drive to Cedar Avenue

"With the installation of the new water mains, our customers in this area should experience increased water flows for residences and fire protection, and continued improvement in reliability," stated Mark Fitzpatrick, New Jersey American Water Project Manager Engineer. "These water main improvements are part of New Jersey American Water's multimillion dollar program to accelerate the renewal of water infrastructure that is reaching the end of its useful life."

Fitzpatrick added that this project is being coordinated with the New Jersey Department of Transportation so that the main replacements are completed ahead of their scheduled pavement resurfacing project beginning in January 2018. Scheduled work will be completed at night, Monday through Thursday from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. New Jersey American Water values the safety of its workers and advises drivers and pedestrians to take caution in the vicinity of work sites.

New Jersey American Water recently published an interactive Infrastructure Upgrade Map on its website to share details about its pipeline renewal projects, including this one. The map is located at www.newjerseyamwater.com under Water Quality, System Updates.
