New Jersey American Water is preparing to replace approximately 1,500 feet of aging 4-inch main that was installed in the 1920s with new 8-inch ductile iron main along Highview Avenue (from Anderson Hill Road to Olcott Avenue). The existing pipe has reached the end of its useful life and will be replaced with new pipe. The project also includes replacing fire hydrants and utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route (see reverse for more information about service lines). These improvements should enhance water service reliability and water flows for household consumption and fire fighting.
As part of this improvement project, we’ll also be installing a meter pit at the curb area of your property, in our right of way. After installation, all that will be visible is a 15-inch circular cover that will be flush with the ground.
