Middlesex Water Company to Invest $14.9 million in Metuchen, South Amboy and Edison's Drinking Water Infrastructure.
As part of its RENEW 2020 Program, the Company will be replacing over 6.3 miles of water mains, as well as service lines, valves, fire hydrants and meters. These improvements are designed to improve fire flows and overall service quality in the area as the new mains being installed have greater water carrying capacity. RENEW also helps the Company to save water by identifying any existing leaks in the RENEW Project area. Proactively addressing aging infrastructure now – on a planned replacement schedule – reduces the likelihood of future disruptive and costly emergency repairs.
