Water Main Replacement Project to Begin on 10th Street, Haven Avenue

New Jersey American Water is preparing to replace approximately 3,300 feet of aging 6-inch cast iron water main that was installed in the 1910s with new 8- and 12-inch ductile iron main along East 10th Street (from Palen Avenue to Haven Avenue) and Haven Avenue (from Ninth Street to 11th Street). The project also includes replacing six fire hydrants and 80 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route. The project is designed to provide customers with safe, reliable water service.

Weather permitting, Pioneer Pipe Contractors will begin work on or about November 8 and expects to be completed within approximately two months. Work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Work outside of these hours is not expected unless required to maintain project schedule. Final street restorations will be completed in the fall of 2022.
