SCMUA Leachate Pump Station and Force Main Project
The Leachate Pump Station/Force Main Project includes construction of 30,000 linear feet of HDPE force main to convey leachate from the SCMUA Solid Waste Facility in Lafayette, NJ to the existing SCMUA wastewater transmission system in Franklin, NJ which ultimately is treated at the Upper Wallkill Facility in Hardyston, NJ. The construction contract was awarded to Tomco Construction (“Tomco”) on August 12, 2020 and the Notice to Proceed was issued on September 3, 2020.

To date, site grubbing and silt fence installation (i.e. site preparation and erosion control) has taken place along the full alignment. Between today and the end of 2020, Tomco will complete site preparation and receive material deliveries. Materials will then be transported to intermediate staging areas along the alignment within the easement across from the Sussex County Technical School on Route 94. The installation of the piping is currently scheduled to begin on January 4, 2021 within the easement. The anticipated project completion date is September 3, 2021.
