Lafayette Avenue - Water Main Replace Project
New Jersey American Water is preparing to replace approximately 5,500 feet of aging 6-inch main that was installed in the 1940s with new 12-inch ductile iron main along Lafayette Avenue (from Southern Blvd to Shunpike Road/Watchung 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. These improvements should enhance water service reliability and water flows for household consumption and fire fighting.
