The company is upgrading the aging 8-inch transite water lines that were installed in the
1970s with new 8-inch ductile iron main along the following streets:
• Old bridge Road from Newbury Road to South Westfield Road;
• Underhill Road, entire length;
• Dutch Valley Road, entire length;
• Sugarbush Road, entire length;

The $2.5 million investment will continue to advance water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection in Howell, according to the press release.
The improvement is part of New Jersey American Water’s multimillion-dollar initiative to
accelerate the renewal of water infrastructure that has reached the end of its useful life
in more than 100 communities across the state, according to the press release.
