ROXBURY, NJ - New Jersey American Water (NJAW) plans to begin next week installing a new water main on a street in Succasunna, a project that will cost about $140,000, said the company.

The new, 8-inch-diameter, ductile iron pipe will run about 475 feet along Sunset Lane from Oak Hill Drive to about the seventh house on the street, said NJAW. It said the project also includes installing one new utility-owned service line along the pipeline route.

“New Jersey American Water’s local, qualified contractor, Vollers Excavating & Construction, Inc., will begin work the week of Dec. 2 and expects to finish in two and a half weeks, weather permitting,” said NJAW in a press release.
