VOORHEES, N.J. (July 6, 2017) – New Jersey American Water will be investing approximately $415,000 for the installation of new water mains in its Aberdeen service area beginning in July. The company will be installing approximately 2,000 feet of new main in this area, replacing water main that was put into service as long ago as the 1960s. The aging water lines will be replaced with PVC pipes.
These investments will continue to improve water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection in this community. The improvements are part of New Jersey American Water’s multimillion dollar program to accelerate the renewal of water infrastructure that is reaching the end of its useful life in more than 100 communities across the state.
New Jersey American Water crews are currently working along the following streets:
- Indigo Lane, from Idolstone Lane to Idlebrook Lane
- Nobel Place, from the end of Nobel Place to Norwood Lane
- Line Road, from 606 Line Road to Lloyd Road
Construction is expected to be completed by the end of September and final street restoration will be completed in the spring of 2018. New Jersey American Water values the safety of its workers and advises drivers and pedestrians to take caution in the vicinity of work sites.
