  NJAW Pipeline Replacement Program   (9/3/2014)
The New Jersey American Water Company will begin their pipeline replacement program on or around September 8, 2014. The contractor, Lafayette Utility Construction Company, will begin a four week water main replacement program on E. Devonshire Avenue, Cambridge Avenue, Berkshire Avenue and Woodlynne Boulevard. This work is being coordinated with an ongoing South Jersey Gas project to renew the utilities on these streets before road restorations are completed. Construction will be performed on weekdays, during the working hours set forth by the City. The affected area will be temporarily paved and a high quality permanent paving will be completed once the proper trench settlement times are met per city ordinance. Once completed, this new water main will provide increased water supply to your area for both domestic use and fire protection. A portion of the roadways will be closed as construction proceeds in accordance with the Linwood Police Departmentís approved detour plan. Access will be maintained for residents and businesses at all times, but residents may not be able to park in the front of their homes when construction is in this block. Low noise pumps will be utilized in areas which require ground dewatering, which in return will keep the trench dry and contractors safe. The water company will be storing pipe at three locations on Franklin Boulevard (near Devonshire, Cambridge, and Berkshire Avenues). Their equipment will also be parked there at the end of each day. If you have any urgent questions, please call the twenty-four hour Customer Service Department at 1-800-NJ-AM-WTR (1-800-652-6987).
