The 35 Residents on Hudson Avenue that are affected by the proposed sewer extension project, have voted (15 to 9) in favor of having the sewers installed.

This comes after the January 8, 2020 public meeting, where the residents were able to hear facts so they could make an informed decision. Afterwards the Borough mailed the residents letters asking for their vote, as the majority of votes would make the final decision on the project.

The project is expected to cost $600,000 based upon engineering estimates and comes at a time where discounts are available through the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJ DEP). Initial paperwork from NJ DEP shows at least a 50% reduction and based upon follow-up requests from the Borough of Hopatcong, could be even be discounted higher.

The proposed modifications include the extension of approximately 2,300 linear feet of low-pressure PVC sewer mains on Hudson Avenue in the Borough for connection to the existing Borough sanitary sewer system.

During the last Council Meeting, it was also announced that another grant may allow the water lines to be run at the same time.
