The Jersey City Municipal Utilities Authority (JCMUA) recently closed on an $81,500,000 loan with the NJ Water Bank to pursue Combined Sewer System (CSS) infrastructure projects in the City to reduce the impacts to the community. This project involves the rehabilitation of existing combined sewer mains and associated manholes, inlets, and appurtenances owned and operated by the JCMUA. The project proposes cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining and repair of approximately 7,400 linear feet (LF) of existing combined sewer mains as well as associated sewer cleaning, internal television inspection and pipeline sealing. In addition, approximately 7,000 LF of combined sewer pipe is beyond repair and will be replaced in kind.
This project will restore the structural condition and hydraulic capacity of the targeted combined sewers and address the continued deterioration and eventual failure of the sewers, preventing backup and discharge of raw sewage in the community and surrounding water bodies. This project will also address the requirements of a Consent Decree with the USEPA and the NJPDES Combined Sewer Management permit.
