Please be advised that the Borough has awarded a contract to Penn Bower Inc. of High Bridge, NJ to
construct a new water main on Center Street. The project limits include the entire length of Center
Street, and work will start at the northern end of Center Street at the intersection with Main Street
and extend to the southern end intersection of Center Street (near the old Casa Maya restaurant).
The purpose of the memorandum is to advise you that Penn Bower, Inc., plans to commence work
on the water main replacement on Monday, October 30, 2023, weather permitting. Construction will
be taking place Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm, and the project is anticipated to
last approximately three (3) weeks. During construction, portions of the roadway will be closed to
thru traffic. As with all construction projects, we urge residents to proceed with caution in areas of
construction. The Borough and its contractor will make every effort to keep interruptions to a
minimum and complete this project as quickly as possible; however, there may be nuisance-related
instances of delays, noise from construction equipment, etc.
During the construction of the new water main, residents/property owners of Center Street can
expect a loss of water service for several hours on the day(s) the contractor relocates the water
service connection from the existing water main to the newly installed main. The contractor will
coordinate with each resident ahead of the service installations.
If you should have any questions regarding this notice or the project in general, please don’t hesitate
to contact me at or (908) 310-9003. Thank you in advance for your
