Project Overview

As part of the New Jersey American Water Company's 2022 Capital Improvement Program, NJAW's contractor, Alpha Utility Contractors replaced water mains and individual service laterals, to the curb line, in the municipal right of way on the Dodds Lane and Baker Court.  A total of 5,400 feet of water main and services 70 transfer services were replaced.

The existing water mains on the above-mentioned streets were near the end of their lifecycle.  Old unlined cast iron water mains build up deposits that lead to discoloration, taste and odor issues and reduced fire flows to fire hydrants.  These older pipes tend to fail, causing water main breaks.  In order for NJAW to provide high-quality, reliable water service, the contractor:

  • Replaced the water main in the street with new 8" ductile iron cement lined water main 
  • Replaced individual house service laterals to the curb line / edge of pavement  
  • Installed water meter chambers near the curb line / edge of pavement where applicable for each residence
  • Restored all disturbed area including roadway resurfacing
