Middlesex Water Company Investing $11.2 Million To Upgrade New Jersey Water Mains

Middlesex Water Company has announced plans to invest $11.2 million to improve drinking water infrastructure in New Jersey. 

As part of what it calls its RENEW 2020 program, the company will replace over 2 miles of water infrastructure in the Township of Edison and the City of South Amboy.

The Edison construction will take place first beginning in mid-February 2020. The company will replace 14,000 linear feet of water main in the Township at a cost of $6.7 million.

The South Amboy project involves replacing 10,200 linear feet of water main and will cost $4.5 million.

The work will also upgrade service lines, valves and fire hydrants and is being performed to improve fire flows and to enhance overall service quality.

“This year marks the 25th year in which Middlesex Water has been proactively strengthening its water infrastructure through the RENEW Program,” said Dennis W. Doll, Chairman, President and CEO.

RENEW is part of Middlesex Water’s overall Water for Tomorrow® Program, a $295 million infrastructure investment initiative (planned through 2021) which consists of various projects designed to strengthen the Company’s water distribution infrastructure.

Other projects underway include construction of a large diameter transmission main through parts of Edison and Metuchen which is in its final phase, conversion to ozone disinfection at the Company’s largest New Jersey treatment plant, and addition of standby electrical generation.

Both projects are expected to take 6 months to complete.
