VOORHEES, N.J. – New Jersey American Water is investing $390,000 in new water mains in its service area of Chatham and West Orange.  The approximate 3,200 feet of new ductile iron pipe replaces water main that was installed as far back as the 1950s.

In Chatham, New Jersey American Water’s qualified contractor, Montana Construction, Inc. began last week working along Lenape Trail, from Shunpike Road to Lafayette Avenue.

Both projects will be completed by the end of April with final street restoration being completed in the summer of 2018.
