Newark Lead Service Line Replacement Program
Owner: City of Newark, N.J.
Project Team: CDM Smith, Roman E&G Corp.
The Newark Lead Service Line Replacement Program consisted of replacing 23,000+ lead water service lines to homes in the city of Newark and confirming another 4,000+ homes did not require lead service replacements. The projects were done using trenchless technology to minimize the impact to the citizens of Newark and lower project costs. Lead lines were replaced with new copper lines providing safer drinking water to the citizens of Newark. The CDM Smith program/construction management team, working closely with the City of Newark managed this large-scale public works program, completed it under budget and seven years ahead of schedule.
