As part of its national program to invest in water infrastructure, enhance water service and fire protection for customers, SUEZ officials announced today the replacement of about 800 linear feet of aging water main on Bounty Court beginning in late July, 2021. The approximate $400,000 investment within the Anchorage Harbor community will enhance the reliability of water service in the area and help ensure a resilient system for the future.
“This project represents continuing investment in Toms River, which allows the company to make critical enhancements to the water infrastructure,” said Jim Mastrokalos, Director of Operations. “Replacing this aging water main installed in the 1960s with new 8-inch ductile iron pipe will improve service and build a resilient, sustainable water system that the Anchorage Harbor community can rely on for many years to come,” he added.
In addition to the water main upgrade, the company will also renew 36 individual water services.
The company anticipates intermittent, temporary parking limitations to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible. SUEZ will provide ample notification to residents as the project progresses including when to expect brief, short-term interruptions of water service.
Emergency vehicles will be allowed access during the project and the company requests that pedestrians and drivers to please take caution within the work site during construction.
The project is expected to be completed including milling and paving by mid-September, 2021, with final restoration expected prior to the end of December, 2021.
Information pertaining to the project will be available on the SUEZ website at www.mysuezwater.com and social media channels.
