Water Main Public Notice

NOTICE OF CONSTRUCTION - Route 46 Water Main Rehabilitation Phase I

As part of the Township’s ongoing Water Distribution System Improvements Program, we will be rehabilitating an existing water main on Route 46 between Troy Rd. and Crown Point Rd. The project has been awarded to J. Fletcher Creamer & Son, Inc., and includes the cleaning and installation of a structural liner in approximately 6,200 feet of an existing 10-inch cast iron water main.

Construction is currently scheduled to begin on or about Monday, June 13, 2022 and is expected to last until October 14, 2022. Final restoration will be performed in the Spring of 2023. Work hours will be from 8 PM to 5 AM, Monday through Friday.

Project Overview and What to Expect:

Customers along the project route will be provided with temporary water service once the existing water main in taken out of service for rehabilitation. Temporary above ground bypass piping will be installed along the curb line within the work area and a service connection will be made at the location of your existing exterior shut-off valve. The temporary water service will be maintained throughout the project duration. When the existing water main is placed back in service, customers may experience a temporary service interruption and a slight discoloration of water. If this happens, run the water until it is clear.

Advanced notice will be provided to you for scheduled shutdowns of the water main and when service will be disrupted.

Traffic Flow and Accessibility:

For the public and contractor’s safety, traffic restrictions and/or lane closures will occur during work hours. Advanced notice will be provided prior to any driveway access restrictions. All residents and emergency vehicles will be allowed access during construction.

Noise and Site Maintenance:

As with any construction project, noise will be unavoidable with this project. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and cooperation. The project site will be maintained and cleaned each morning prior to the contractor completing their daily work.

Should you have any questions or concerns you may contact Sean Andres, Assistant Water Superintendent, at 973-263-7108, Monday through Friday between 7:00 AM and 3:30 PM.

We thank you for your patience and cooperation while we work to improve water service to the area.

Very truly yours.

The Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills Water Department
