The Borough of Tuckerton recently completed sanitary sewer main improvements that are being funded with approximately $1.3 million 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 $432,962 over the 30-year term of the loan or 32% of the total project cost. In addition, this project created an estimated 16 direct construction jobs.  

The project replaced over 3,000 linear feet of 6-inch asbestos cement pipe sewer mains with 8-inch PVC piping. The existing mains were showing signs of cracks, breaks, and settlement which contributed to increased costs due to infiltration. Laterals, cleanouts, and manholes were also replaced. Sanitary sewerage is conveyed by gravity sewer mains to various pump stations where the sewage is pumped within force mains to the Ocean County Utility Authority's gravity mains and pump stations.      

According to Mayor Susan R. Marshall, "Tuckerton Borough is committed to investing in our utility infrastructure. This project represents an obvious fix to resolve infiltration issues. In addition to enhancing the integrity of our service, these improvements reflect a dedication to efficiency. Our ratepayers also benefit by borrowing through the Water Bank which saves them money through the life of the financing." 

This project was designed by Owen Little and Associates and Constructed by P&A Construction, Inc.
