TOMS RIVER – SUEZ announced today that the company will begin a $1.5 million restoration project to improve its Indian Hill Road elevated water storage tank. The restoration is being done to ensure reliable, quality water service.
“This project is vital to our community. It will not only assure that customers will continue to receive high-level service and exceptional water quality, but it will also secure resources for peak water use, fire flow, and emergency service demands,” said Jim Mastrokalos, Director of Operations.
The elevated water storage tank was drained recently to prepare for the restoration work which will last several weeks, according to Mastrokalos. SUEZ’s contractor US Tank Painting, Inc. will be on site during the work week, 7 a.m.-5 p.m.
“The quality of the water provided to customers during this project will not be affected and will continue to meet or exceed all federal and state water quality regulations,” said Mastrokalos.
Customers located near the tank site, near the intersection of Hooper Avenue and Indian Hill Road, should not notice major changes in water service during the restoration work. There will however be minor water pressure deviations due to the out-of-service tank during the project.
US Tank Painting, Inc. will provide full containment during exterior paint removal, surface preparation and painting to keep any materials from traveling into neighboring properties.
Work on this project should be complete in early 2019.
