NEW JERSEY-AMERICAN WATER PLACES CHESTER AVENUE STATION BACK IN OPERATION

 NEW JERSEY-AMERICAN WATER PLACES
 CHESTER AVENUE STATION BACK IN OPERATION
 HADDON HEIGHTS, N.J., May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- New Jersey-American Water Company has put a new treatment system in operation at its Chester Avenue Pumping Station in Delran.
 The first day of operation was May 22. The new treatment system removes benzene that was found in the supply wells.
 The new system includes four granular activated carbon treatment units. These units are vertically mounted vessels, 10 feet in diameter and 20 feet high. Each vessel holds approximately 20,000 pounds of granular activated carbon. The carbon removes the benzene through a chemical/physical process called adsorption.
 The benzene was first discovered this Feb. 21 during routine monitoring, at levels at or below the health-based standard enforced by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and Energy. The station was taken out of service as a precaution.
 In order to ensure that New Jersey-American customers had an adequate supply of safe drinking water during the warmer summer months, the company expedited planning and installation of the new treatment system. Once local permit approvals were obtained, construction of the system, manufactured by Calgon Corporation of Pittsburgh, was completed in only six weeks.
 Another granular activated carbon treatment system is being constructed at New Jersey-American's Pomona Road Station in Cinnaminson, N.J., in order to remove trichloroethylene (TCE) found in one of the wells there and in two wells at the company's New Albany Road Station. The company said it hopes to have the contaminated well at Pomona Road back in operation sometime next week. The two New Albany Road wells are expected to be back in operation by June 30 following completion of a 8,600-foot pipeline to carry partially treated water from New Albany Road to the new carbon filtration system at Pomona Road.
