September 27, 2017 at 09:06 AM EDT
New Jersey American Water began work this month on a number of water infrastructure improvements, investing over $4.4 million within its Monmouth County service areas. The approximate 30,130 feet of new pipe replaces water main that was installed as far back as the 1900s. The existing pipe has reached the end of its useful life and will be replaced with new ductile iron and PVC pipes.
“These projects demonstrate our commitment to provide high quality, reliable water service to our customers and represent just a few of the $350 million in system-wide upgrades we are making in 2017,” stated Jeff Bowlby, manager of field operations. “We encourage customers to use our new, user-friendly Infrastructure Upgrade Map located on the company’s website to details about its pipeline renewal projects, including these projects located in Monmouth County.”
