Newark Bay Sewer Pipes – Bayonne NJ

Description

The federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) supplied the labor and paid most of the project cost of laying three sewer pipelines from points in west Bayonne to points in Newark Bay beneath the low tide line. Three 12-inch cast iron pipes, each 220 feet long, were to be laid transporting waste into the bay at 49th, 52nd, and 53rd Streets.

The project also provided for the reconstruction of manhole covers and the cleaning of 4,020 feet of beach.
