TOMS RIVER – SUEZ will be replacing water main in the Holiday City Silverton section of Toms River as part of a $4.5 million water main upgrade project to improve service and water quality.
Holiday City Silverton residents should expect the replacement of one mile of water main over 13 streets including Acapulco Place, Aldo Drive, Bear Mountain Court, Caribbean Street, Catalina Court, Catskill Court, Key West Court, Mount Nebo Lane, Niagara Drive, Palisades Drive, Palm Springs Court, Pocono Place and St. Moritz Place.
Work is set to begin mid-June.
“This upgrade will reduce the number of potential system failures and maintenance jobs that become more frequent as water mains age,” said Jim Mastrokalos, Director of Operations. “Fire safety will also improve with increased water pressure.”
This project, which also includes renewal of about 170 residential services, will cost $1.5 million of the $4.5 million program for 2019.
“The long-term benefits of this project are significant. Upgrading these critical assets helps our communities, not only today but for generations to come,” Mastrokalos added. “We apologize in advance for any interruptions in service or construction and will do our best to give customers ample notification of construction or planned interruptions to water service.”
SUEZ will be replacing aged water main, initially installed in the 1960s, with 6 and 8-inch ductile iron pipe. Work will be performed on Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., weather permitting.
Project is expected to be completed August 2019.
