J.F. Kiely wins sewer main installation bid
On May 13, 2009 J.F. Kiely Construction Co. won a public bid partially funded by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to install underground utilities. These underground utilities included 5,000 feet of 8-inch irrigation water main, 2,500 feet of 4-inch sanitary forced main and 2,000 feet of conduit. The restoration portion of the project included paving, as well as topsoil and seeding.

The irrigation portion of the project provides the athletic fields with water, and the forced sanitary main provides sewer services for the employees as well as to some of the 500 animals living at the Zoo. Finally, the conduit will assist the Zoo in finalizing their own Internet network.

"Although the original bid called for open trenching, we value engineered the project and determined that not only would directional drilling be more productive, but also less expensive," said John M. Kiely, president of J.F. Kiely Construction Co.

J.F. Kiely Construction Co. offers utility customers a diversified list of services, including the installation of gas, water, electric and sewer. The company specializes in directional drilling, high-pressure tapping, pipe welding and plastic fusion.
