First-of-its-Kind Urban Homes: Using Less Water, Saving More Money

New Jersey American Water:

WHAT:

New Jersey American Water and the Cramer Hill (Camden) Community Development Corp. (CHCDC) in Camden will break ground on the construction of “Nueva Vida III,” 12, single-family homes destined to be the first urban development of its kind in the nation to be labeled an EPA WaterSense community.

Earlier this year, New Jersey American Water donated $750,000 to the Nueva Vida development through the NJ Department of Community Affairs (DCA) Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Program. A portion of the funding will be used to install WaterSense plumbing fixtures, washers and dryers, and smart water meters designed to help home owners conserve water, monitor water usage and save money on water bills. Also at the groundbreaking, a small community garden will be planted to mark the “new life” the housing construction represents for the future of Camden.

WHEN:

Wednesday, April 25, 2012
11 a.m.

WHERE:

North 24th Street, between Harrison Ave. and Pierce Ave.
Camden, NJ

WHO:

New Jersey American Water President David Baker; Camden Mayor Dana L. Redd; NJ Board of Public Utilities Commissioner Mary-Anna Holden; DCA Assistant Commissioner Ana Montero; Camden County Freeholder Jeff Nash; Cramer Hill Community Corp. Executive Director Manny Delgado; representatives from the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, and the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities.

WHY:

Through the DCA Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Program, New Jersey American Water is working with neighborhood organizations and municipalities to invest in the communities where the company provides water service. Nueva Vida will be an example to consumers of the benefits of using water wisely to conserve an essential natural resource and save money on water bills. Construction of the homes will be complete by the end of the year.
