New Jersey American Water to Replace Water Mains in Piscataway Credits: New Jersey American Water

VOORHEES, NJ – New Jersey American Water said it began replacing about 1,180 feet of water main lines in several Piscataway neighborhoods in order to improve water service reliability and increase water flows for household use and fire protection.

The project will cost the utility about $250,000 to replace aging water lines with ductile iron pipes, officials said on Wednesday.

Contractors have already started working along South Ave., from Grant Ave. to Hall Street. The water utility’s infrastructure upgrade map shows work will also be done on Short, Hall and Mabel Streets.

Construction is expected to be completed by the end of October with final street restoration being done next spring.

The upgrades are part of the utility’s plan to improve water infrastructure in more than 100 communities across the state.
