Guest HudsonObserver Posted December 30, 2005 Report Share Posted December 30, 2005 In 2005, the Kearny water department replaced (or is replacing as we speak) water mains on King Street, Schuyler Court, Devon Terrace and Washington AVenue among others. That's some 4,500 linear feet of 8 inch diameter water main pipe, 45 water valves, 90 house service lines and 30 new fire hydrants in the past year alone. Major repairs were also completed on the town's water transmission line under the Passaic River. In the 2005 fiscal year, the Kearny Water Department collected 4,754,008 from water billing, which includes 327,000 from water sales to Cedar Grove. That's all actual cash that came in. That covered all expenses of the water utility, albeit with no room to spare. Here's one amazing thought to ponder: Kearny has the LOWEST water rates in this region AND can operate its water department in the black AND at the same time make major improvements to its water system. Kudos to all those responsible for this! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
