LAKE RIVIERA LOWERED TO ACCOMMODATE PROJECT

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s Office of Dam Safety has ordered the township to lower Lake Riviera a maximum of 4’ so that a compromised outfall pipe can be replaced. The township has no control over the timing of this project.

The township has contracted with ARH Engineering to manage this project. The project must be done in accordance with strict procedures as laid out by the DEP. As of June 28, we are awaiting approval of the applications for the required permits.

The township expects this project to take approximately one month and expects it to be complete in late July/early August. The township understands the concerns and frustrations of residents and apologizes for any inconveniences caused by this project.
