Franklin Township Sewerage Authority
The Project is the first step in eliminating six (6) of FTSA's connections into the City of New Brunswick's Mile Run Interceptor Sewer.
This complex Project required relocation of sanitary sewers, redirection of sewage flows, and construction of a large cast in place concrete Sewage Pumping Station. Excavation for the Station structure was over fifty (50) feet deep on a restricted site which required detailed planning and careful execution. The pumping facility has four (4) dry pit submersible pumps with sophisticated controls along with dual force mains to accommodate large variations in sewage flows. The Rodney Avenue Pumping Station and the associated upstream sewerage construction facilitated elimination of three (3) direct connections into New Brunswick's Mile Run Interceptor Sewer. The Project also facilitated the construction of the Hamilton Street and Somerset Street Pumping Stations which, in combination, will eliminate four (4) additional connections to the New Brunswick sewerage system.
The Capacity of the Rodney Avenue Pumping Station is 6.75 million gallons per day (MGD) and is one of the largest facilities in the Franklin Township Sewerage Authority System.
FTSA utilized low interest loans secured through the New Jersey Environmental Infrastructure Trust (IBANK) to finance the Project, providing interest cost savings which have benefited the Township Residents served by the Authority.
