The Township of Long Beach recently completed a drinking water project that is being funded with approximately $7.1 million in loans from the NJ Water Bank, a joint low-rate funding program of the DEP and the NJ Infrastructure Bank (formerly the NJEIT). Total savings for this project are estimated to be $2,291,943 over the 30-year term of the loan or 32% of the total project cost. In addition, this project created an estimated 85 direct construction jobs.  

The original 50-year-old pump room was flooded and damaged with salt water during Superstorm Sandy compromising the electrical equipment. The project included the demolition and reconstruction of the existing water pump room as well as associated components. The new building was constructed in accordance with FEMA flood zone regulations. 

This project also increased the Township's pumping capacity to address population growth since the original pump room was constructed. According to Joseph Mancini, Mayor of Long Beach Township, "This project  will make  an immediate and noticeable difference  to our residents. In the long term, it reflects effective asset management which will reduce our operating costs and save money for our residents over time."  

This project was designed by Owen Little & Associates and Constructed by Quad Construction.
