The City of Bordentown recently completed a drinking water project that is being funded with approximately $1.2 million in loans from the NJ Water Bank, a joint low-rate funding program of the DEP and the NJIB. Total savings for this project are estimated to be $272,293, over the 20-year term of the loan or 22% of the total project cost. In addition, this project created an estimated 13 direct construction jobs.  

The City reduced the radium level in its potable water supply by replacing existing Well No. 2 with Well No. 2A. The project included drilling the new replacement well, installation of permanent pumping equipment, the construction of a masonry well house and associated conveyance piping.  

James Lynch, Mayor of Bordentown commends the project. "We as a governing body see no local issue more important then the quality of our drinking water as it affects each and every one of us every day. Our City water department provides our citizens with a dependable supply of high-quality drinking water at the lowest possible cost to our rate payers." Lynch went on to say "This project is an example of our water department's commitment to improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources.  

This project was designed by Remington, Vernick and Arango, and constructed by Tkt Construction Inc., with sub-contracting by Tortorice Contracting, Abs Electric, Inc., AC Schultes, Inc. and Dandrea Masonry.
