Middlesex Water Company Launches $160 Million Infrastructure Effort

Posted on by Marybeth Leongini

Middlesex Water Company has announced a major infrastructure campaign to enhance safety, reliability and resiliency throughout its water system in New Jersey.

The campaign, Water For Tomorrow®, involves numerous projects designed to upgrade and replace infrastructure and enhance the integrity of system assets to better serve the current and future generations of water users. Middlesex plans to invest $160 million through 2018 in connection with this plan.  The Middlesex system in New Jersey provides retail, commercial and industrial water services to 61,000 homes and businesses in Carteret, Edison, Metuchen, South Amboy, South Plainfield and Woodbridge.

This long-planned capital program follows the recent release of an Infrastructure Report Card issued by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), which rated the state of our country’s water infrastructure a D+ and urged a wakeup call attending to the condition of America’s drinking water.

“Working to ensure sustained quality service across generations is a major part of our responsibility as a steward of a precious natural resource that is critical to economic stability, as well as to life itself. This responsibility requires that we make smart, proactive capital investments,” said Dennis W. Doll, Middlesex Water Chairman, President and CEO.  “The projects encompassed in the Water For Tomorrow campaign are all based on rigorous asset management evaluations. They are a natural extension of the diligence we have applied over many years to make prudent investments to bolster our water delivery network, enhance system pressures and storage, provide critical back up supplies, reduce lost water, and enhance the safety of our water treatment process,” added Doll.
