Transmission Main to Increase Reliability 

VOORHEES, NJ – New Jersey American Water has recently begun a new phase of construction of a nine-mile water transmission main in Middletown Twp. The 36-inch main, in this phase, will run along Middletown-Lincroft Rd from W. Front St. to Bamm Hollow Rd., will help manage water demand and pressures in the Monmouth County. When completed, the project will reduce pressure by as much as 40 pounds per square inch (PSI) thereby reducing the likelihood of mains breaks and service disruptions.

“Over the last two years, we have constructed 6 miles of the planned nine-mile transmission main improvement” said Suzanne Chiavari, vice president of engineering for New Jersey American Water. “This phase will include 3500 feet of which about 8500 feet have been completed since June. The transmission main will improve service, enhance fire protection, and reduce pipe pressure.”

During this phase, crews will be working daily from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will have impact on traffic and limited water service interruptions for customers’ homes and businesses.
