BRADLEY BEACH – New Jersey American Water will invest $600,000 to replace approximately 1,860 feet of aging water main in Bradley Beach.
The plan consists of upgrading an aging six-inch cast iron water line that was installed in the 1920s, with new, eight-inch ductile iron main along Fifth Avenue from Madison Avenue to Ocean Avenue. They will also replace one fire hydrant and 65 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route.
New Jersey American Water continues to advance water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection in the community with this investment. This is a part of the multimillion-dollar initiative to accelerate the renewal of water infrastructure.
According to New Jersey American Water, their local contractor Perna Finnigan Inc. was expected to start work on or about January 18 and is expected to finish by the end of March, weather permitting. Work hours will be from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Final street restorations will be completed in the summer of 2021.
