In accordance with procedures established to evaluate projects that have applied for assistance under the New Jersey Water Bank (NJWB), a Level 1 environmental review has been conducted on the proposed projects referenced above. The projects consist of two phases. Phase 1 is to use test pitting to determine the location of lead service lines that exist in the subject areas. Phase 2 will consist of replacing service lines that are determined to be lead with an equivalent size Type ‘K’ copper service within the same footprint.
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has made a preliminary decision to assist this project under the NJWB. The preliminary project costs are as follows:
