Water main replacement scheduled for Utah Avenue in Cherry Hill

The main replacement will take place from South Kings Highway to the end of the road.

New Jersey American Water is beginning a water main replacement project in Cherry Hill to improve service reliability, prevent water outages and enhance fire protection. The project will replace aging pipe dating back to the 1900s.

“New Jersey American Water places a high value on our proactive replacement program, as it helps us improve water quality and service and makes our systems more resilient to potential disruptions in the future,” stated David Forcinito, senior director, south operations. “These projects within Burlington and Camden counties are a continuation of the critical investment for the company to provide our customers with safe, reliable water service.”

Beginning this month, NJAW’s contractor, Pioneer Pipe Contractors Inc. will begin work on Utah Avenue in Cherry Hill, from South Kings Highway to the end of the road.

Prior to the start of construction, the residents within the scope of the project will receive a notice stating the actual state date. Drivers and pedestrians are reminded to take caution while traveling in the vicinity of work sites, especially during construction hours. New Jersey American Water values the safety of its workers and advises drivers and pedestrians to take caution near work sites.
