Water Main Replacement Work - Ridgewood

Ridgewood PSEG Utility Right of Way and Dunham Trail

Ridgewood Water (RW) has contracted Shauger Property Services Inc. to complete a water main replacement along the commonly known PSE&G Utility Right of Way (PSEG ROW) in Ridgewood from and including Dunham Trail (at Spring Avenue), along the edge of Brookside Field, to just north of East Ridgewood Avenue.  The existing 12” diameter transmission main is critical aging infrastructure to the water utility and will be upsized to a 20” diameter water main. The work also includes installation of a 10” diameter raw water main as part of RW’s PFAS treatment centralization project.

The planned construction will begin on February 5th with an anticipated completion of the overall work by by April 15th with final restorations by mid-summer or sooner. See below the Notice that was distributed to residents in the immediate area, which includes a map of the approximate limits of the planned work.

As part of the planned construction, the PSEG ROW and an area to the side of Brookside Field will be used as a staging area for storage of materials and equipment. No impact will be made to the playing field and all materials are planned to be removed from the Brookside Field property by the start of athletic activities on or about March 10th.

Construction work is planned to begin on Dunham Trail (just south of Spring Avenue) on February 5th which will require this area of the Trail to be closed for about 1 week. Excavation will progress across Spring Avenue immediately after the work on Dunham Trail is complete. This will cause traffic delays and potential detours along Spring Avenue.

Pre-construction condition photos will be taken and features will be restored to its pre-existing condition or better, to the extent possible and allowed by code. Dunham Trail is fairly open and no trees are planned to be removed here. In the areas of the PSEG ROW, where there are obstacles of working around PSEG infrastructure, there may need to be tree removal to accommodate the new water main installation. If so, RW plans to work with the Village to determine locations where additional trees can be planted to account for any that were removed for this project.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during the construction of this critical capital improvement project. As always, please contact Ridgewood Water Customer Service at (201) 670-5520, or email cswater@ridgewoodnj.net with any questions or concerns.
