NJ I-Bank and NJDEP Helping to Improve New Jersey's Infrastructure, One Project at a Time

The Township of Burlington recently completed Sanitary Sewer Main improvements that are being funded with approximately $720,152 in loans from the NJ Water Bank, a joint low-rate funding program of the DEP and the NJ I-Bank. Total savings for this project are estimated to be $147,804 over the 20-year term of the loan or 21% of the total project cost. In addition, this project created an estimated 9 direct construction jobs.  

The project included the rehabilitation of approximately 14,200 linear feet of existing 8-inch diameter sanitary sewer mains and approximately 1,300 linear feet of 10-inch diameter sanitary sewer mains located in the Springside section of the Township. Prospect, Bunting, Gerome, and Ellis Avenue sewer mains were also rehabilitated along with ninety manholes.The sewer mains were largely constructed of asbestos cement piping (ACP), and in danger of collapse. Cured—in—place piping (CIPP) was installed utilizing trenchless technology (slip lining) to clean and reline the mains to reestablish optimal flow conditions and prevent failure of the system. 

According to Brian J. Carlin, Mayor of Burlington Township, "Maintaining our water, sewer and roadway infrastructure is critical to delivering affordable services to our residents. Investing in our sewer system improvements promotes efficient cost-effective operations that greatly benefits the residents and businesses of Burlington Township. Through the use of the NJ Water Bank, we are able to ensure the stability of our infrastructure at a savings to our residents."  

This project was designed by the Burlington Township Engineering Department and constructed by North American Pipeline Services, LLC.
