As you are probably aware, the Borough has been working on upgrades to the water system. The final phase of these improvements will be to install a new 6-inch water main along the frontage of properties along Route 46 between Flanders Road and Love Lane. The new water main will be installed approximately 10 to 12 feet behind the Route 46 curb due to existing utilities along and behind the curb area. This work will include installing the new water main and connecting each existing building service to the new main.
The contractor will make every effort to minimize disturbance to your property as work proceeds. Any areas which are disturbed including but not limited to driveways, walkways, walls, lawns and associated vegetation will be restored before this phase of the project is complete.
The project is anticipated to start on or about August 20 and should be completed in approximately two weeks. The contractor’s workday is expected to be from 7:00 am to approximately 4:00 pm. The ending time each day may be variable based on the actual work that is being done on any given day. At this time, there is no work scheduled to be done on weekends except to address emergency situations. We recognize that construction activities associated with this project will likely present an inconvenience to residents along the street (such as water service interruptions when your service is changed over from the old main to the new main and driveway access interruptions as the new main is installed. The contractor has indicated that he will make every effort to try and minimize the inconvenience. Should you have any questions or concerns as the project progresses, the
Borough will have a construction inspector at the site to answer questions and coordinate with the contractor as necessary.
The Borough appreciates your patience as they continue to try to continue to provide quality water to their customers. Should you have any questions or concerns about any aspect of this phase of the water system improvements, please contact Borough Engineer Robert P. Guerin, P.E. at 973-252-9340 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
