JCP&L’s Montville-Whippany 230 kV Transmission Project
BACKGROUND: On March 27, 2015, JCP&L filed an
application with the Board of Public Utilities seeking to construct a
transmission line between its substations in East Hanover and Montville.
This line will run through the Township of Montville
and this section of the Township’s website is dedicated to providing the public
with any updates regarding this application.
UPDATE #1 (4/24/15): The Township of Montville is about to file an
application to intervene in this action.
A copy of the Motion to Intervene will be available via a link that will
be posted on this page. The Motion
requests the ability of Montville
to represent the municipality and comment and object to the application filed
by JCP&L. Accordingly, it is hoped
and anticipated that the application will be approved so the Township of Montville
will be able to fully participate in JCP&L’s application.
In the meantime, the special engineering consultants, Maser
and Associates, have reviewed the application and provided preliminary comments
regarding this matter to the Administration.
In addition, Maser has consulted with legal counsel for the Township
regarding possible additional experts and the extent of the scope of their
services that will be necessary to vigorously oppose this application on behalf
of the residents of the Township
Finally, if you, or any group of individuals, seek to retain
legal counsel, you should contact Fred Semrau, Esq., the Township’s municipal
attorney, at 973-334-1900 or Victor Canning,
Township Administrator at 973-331-3302 with any questions or to discuss the
coordination of such efforts. Rest assured that the representation of the
Township will be to serve the interest of all residents.
We will continue to post weekly updates here regarding this matter.

Annual Hydrant Flushing: April 13 - May 1, 2015
Annual Hydrant Flushing
April 13, 2015 – May 1, 2015
The Annual Hydrant Flushing will take place on
weekdays from APRIL 13th to MAY 1st between the hours of
9AM-3PM. This is being done
to remove accumulated sediment from our water mains.
We have divided the Township
into 4 areas based on which water tank feeds the area. Please refer to the Hydrant Flushing Area Map
to determine which area you are in. The
areas will be flushed in the following order: red, yellow, blue then green. Please monitor the and Street List
to follow our progress. The rate of
progress will be directly affected by the flushing conditions found as our team
moves through the Township.
Please keep in mind that
discolored water could occur in your home or business at any time during the flushing period but more
likely when we flush the water mains in your neighborhood. The Street List will be updated periodically to show
streets that have been completed.
SCHOOLS AND RESTAURANTS WILL BE NOTIFIED IN ADVANCE
OF FLUSHING IN THEIR AREA.
This process could result in
discolored/cloudy water or low pressure during and immediately following the
daily flushing. If you experience discolored
water, open the cold-water faucets on the lowest floor of the house and allow
the water to run until it clears (usually within 30 min). If it persists, call
the Water and Sewer office at 973-331-3330.
Discolored or cloudy water is safe to consume, but not
desirable for use. We strongly recommend that water softeners be bypassed during the day
throughout the flushing period and and that you refrain from doing laundry and using water
for drinking and cooking from 9am to 5pm.
