NJEIT Project of the Week: Long Beach Township Sanitary Sewer Replacement
Community Receives $3,191,600 in NJEIFP loans: Estimated Savings to rate payers of $2,276,819
Long Beach Township recently completed a sanitary sewer replacement project that is being funded with $3.2 million in loans from the NJEIFP, a joint low-rate funding program of the DEP and the NJEIT. This project qualified for principal forgiveness totaling $1,580,000 as it addressed damage from Super Storm Sandy and improved resilience for future storms. Including interest cost savings, total savings for this project is estimated to be $2.2 million, over the 20-year term of the loan or 71% of the total project cost and create an estimated 37 construction jobs.
Aging asbestos cement and clay piping were deteriorating and led to leaks and infiltrations. In addition, many undersized watermains and shallow depth water mains were prone to freezing and bursting. The township removed and replaced approximately 12,000 linear feet of sanitary sewer pipe with 8, 10 and 12-inch PVC sanitary sewer pipe as well as associated lateral pipe fittings and manholes. This project ensures continued water quality service for existing users.
This project was designed by Owen Little & Associates and built by P&A Construction.
