PISCATAWAY, NJ — New Jersey American Water is in the process of replacing approximately 2,000 feet of aging water main along Kroeger Lane in Piscataway. According to a recent news release, the company is upgrading the aging 6-inch water lines with new, 8-inch ductile iron main along the street from River Road to the dead end.
The project also includes replacing one fire hydrant and 10 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route.
“This $300,000 investment will continue to advance water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection in this community,” said company officials.
“This improvement is part of New Jersey American Water’s multimillion-dollar initiative to accelerate the renewal of water infrastructure that has reached the end of its useful life in more than 100 communities across the state.”
New Jersey American Water’s local, qualified contractor, CRJ Contracting expects to finish the project by the end of August, weather permitting. Work hours are from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Work outside these hours is not expected unless required to maintain the project schedule.
Final street restorations will be completed by the end of the summer.
