Edison, NJ  -  As part of its Water for Tomorrow initiative, Middlesex Water Company announced the Greenwich Road Area Main Replacement Project in Edison.

According to the company, the project involves the replacement of approximately 2,700 feet of 6-inch water main with 8-inch water main along Greenwich Road from Westover Way to Dale Drive, Westover Way from Greenwich Road to Dale Drive and Crestmont Avenue from Greenwich Road to Westover Way.  Middlesex Water Company will also be installing new below ground meter pits and replacing the cast iron water main and outdated service lines in the area.

“Middlesex Water has always used iron mains, widely respected as the material of choice when they were installed; to distribute water to the communities it serves. These mains have proven their durability through decades of service. Middlesex Water is initiating this project to install new pipes that will last for years to come while simultaneously improving overall water quality and service,” stated the company.

This project is slated to begin the week of July 22, 2019 according to the Middlesex Water Company.  There will be road excavation along Greenwich Road, Westover Way and Crestmont Avenue and customers will be without water for short periods of time while the crews connect their services to the new pipe, stated the company in a notice to residents.

“You should never be without water, except for the few minutes while service is being transferred to the new pipe and when your meter is moved to an outside meter pit,” Middlesex Water Company advised residents in the area.

To remove meters and install it in the meter pit, Middlesex Water Company stated that it will require a utility service representative to gain access to residential homes but the company stated that its representatives will have a photo ID issued by Middlesex Water Company.
