MIDDLESEX WATER COMPANY BEGINS CONSTRUCTION OF
$52 MILLION WESTERN TRANSMISSION MAIN THROUGH
EDISON AND METUCHEN, NJ
Middlesex Water Company, a provider of water and wastewater and related services in New Jersey, is preparing to begin construction of an underground large diameter water transmission main from the Township of Edison to the Borough of Metuchen, New Jersey.
The 42-inch diameter main is being installed to provide critical backup water supply and ensure resiliency in the Company’s water distribution system. This $52 million project, known as the Western Transmission Main, will supplement the company’s existing transmission main which serves a population of over 300,000 in eastern Middlesex County, NJ and help mitigate risks associated with aging infrastructure.
“We’re commencing construction of this supplementary transmission main along the western portion of our New Jersey service territory to harden our infrastructure and ensure an adequate back-up water supply to meet daily basic needs,” said Dennis Doll, Chairman, CEO and President of Middlesex Water. “The Western Transmission Main is one of several projects under our $160 million investment initiative known as Water For Tomorrow® designed to strengthen water distribution infrastructure and ensure greater reliability, safety and service quality for current and future generations of water users,” added Doll.
Under the Western Transmission Main project, 4.5 miles of ductile iron pipe will be installed from Jersey Avenue in Metuchen to Cedar Lane in the Township in Edison.
The project will affect the following streets for a portion of time as pipeline installation progresses, beginning in Edison:
A public meeting where Metuchen residents can learn additional project details and ask questions has been scheduled for Wednesday May 9, 2018 at the Metuchen Senior Center, Center Street, Metuchen NJ 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
