$12 Million Slated for South Plainfield, N.J., Water Infrastructure

(UC) — New Jersey American Water said it will spend $12 million to rehabilitate 3,500 feet of aging, 60-inch transmission pipe in South Plainfield, N.J., this fall in a project that includes the reconstruction of existing manholes and valve pits along the route.

The investment to improve water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection in the community is part of a broader initiative to accelerate infrastructural renewal in more than 100 cities across New Jersey, American Water said.

New Jersey American Water’s local, qualified contractor, Schilke Construction Co., will begin work early November and expects to finish by April 2020, weather permitting. The project will have a minimal impact on the roadway, and final street restorations will be completed in the summer of 2020, if needed.

The company, a New Jersey subsidiary of American Water, is the largest investor-owned water utility in the state, providing water and/or wastewater services to 2.7 million people.
