DESCRIPTION: The Town of Boonton utilizes two (2) tanks located at the Green Street Tank facility to assist in maintaining the necessary storage volume and systems pressures for the Low Service Area of the Town. The smaller half million gallon tank was replaced in 2008 with the design assistance and construction oversight by SCE.
In spring 2011, SCE began the analysis and design for the proper replacement of the larger one million gallon water storage tank. Since this tank provides a significant storage volume for the distribution system, SCE analyzed and made recommendations for various offsite water distribution system improvements that would be required prior to taking the 1 MG tank out of service.
The improvements include installation of a permanent metered and pressure controlled interconnection with the Township of Montville, installation of the redundant 800 GPM pump at the North Main Street Pump Station, replacement of two (2) pumps at the Boonton Well Field Plant, and a temporary interconnection with the Borough of Mountain Lakes. In addition a thorough analysis and systematic plan for modified operation during the construction period was generated such that the Town could maintain a fully operational system even under peak flow conditions.
The project also included all associated permitting from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) including soil erosion and sediment control and Bureau of Water Systems and Well Permitting. In order to assist the Town in funding the project, SCE worked with the Town to obtain funding from the New Jersey Infrastructure Trust Program and the Morris County Community Development Block Grant Program.
1. Performed thorough analysis, testing and monitoring of the water distribution system for uninterrupted supply during construction.
2. Met the strict requirements of the New Jersey Infrastructure Trust Program.
