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

Metuchen Borough recently closed on a $8,227,354 loan with the New Jersey Water Bank to construct a new submersible pump station. The existing pump station comprises much of the original equipment dating back to its construction in the mid-1950's and has become more difficult to maintain. Failure of the station would result in wastewater discharge into the surrounding environment. The new pump station will accommodate the peak flow from the existing Edison pump station and peak flows from Metuchen.

Improvements will include the construction of a precast concrete wet well and valve chamber, precast concrete and electrical control structure, a stand-by generator, and the installation of three submersible pumps. The existing force main and gravity sewers will be extended and approximately 550 linear feet of gravity sewer, 500 linear feet of 24-inch force main and ten manholes will be constructed to connect the proposed pump station to the existing utilities. The new gravity sewer will consist of 15- and 24-inch PVC pipe. The pump station will collect and pump wastewater generated within the service area to an interceptor carrying the flow to the Middlesex County Utilities Authority in Sayreville for treatment.
