NJ American Water invests $4M in Loch Arbour, Asbury Park, Allenhurst
New Jersey American Water will be investing $4M in new water mains in its service area of Loch Arbour, Asbury Park and Allenhurst. 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. "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.
