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

Delanco Sewerage Authority recently closed on a $1,582,000 loan with the New Jersey Water Bank for collection system improvements. The project includes the cured in place lining of the existing sanitary sewer trunkline in Delanco Township. This includes approximately 8,000 linear feet of 15- and 16-inch gravity sewer main, constructed of vitrified clay and asbestos cement pipe that was constructed in the 1940s. The trunkline is responsible for conveying over 90% of the Authority's waste to the neighboring Beverly Sewerage Treatment Plant. The proposed work includes lining various sewer mains and the rehabilitation of manholes and lateral connections identified for repair on a 2019 CCTV Inspection. These components of the project will reset the effective life of the deteriorated system, reduce I&I, and effectively increase the capacity of the main. Also proposed are improvements to the Authority's three pumping stations. These backup pumps will replace the aging and problematic generators which are heavily relied on due to frequent loss of city power. A SCADA system will replace landlines which are unreliable in foul weather events. The system will reduce response times and inform operator response to emergencies.
