TOMS RIVER – Today, SUEZ began work on their $1.2 million water infrastructure improvement projects throughout Toms River Township in an effort to enhance water quality and service for residents.
Work on these projects will continue through July and August.
“Customers should know that their water dollars are being put to good use. We are investing approximately $1.2 million in over 6,000 feet or about 1.2 miles of new water mains,” said Jim Mastrokalos, Director of Operations. “Building a sustainable system that will provide reliable service and continue to meet increasingly stringent water quality standards for years to come are our greatest priorities.”
SUEZ will be replacing water mains with a combination of 8-inch and 12-inch ductile iron pipe in these areas:
- Adams Avenue, Parkwood Avenue and Continental Avenue
- Coolidge Avenue between Windsor Avenue and Red Cedar Street
- Massachusetts Avenue between Fortune Court and North Maple Avenue
- Roosevelt Avenue between Adams Street and South Street, which includes 15 side street tie-ins
- West Briar Avenue between Pearl Drive, Schoolhouse Lane and Princess Court
“We apologize in advance for any interruptions in service or construction and will do our best to give customers ample notification of planned interruptions to water service,” Mastrokalos said.
Work will be performed Monday through Friday, 7 a.m.-5 p.m., daily with the exception of holidays. Work is weather permitting. The $1.2 million infrastructure project is expected to be complete by the end of August.
