Van Note-Harvey  is currently providing professional engineering services for improving/modifying the domestic and fire water systems on the McGraw-Hill North and South Campuses located in East Windsor Township. The Campuses are currently provided with water through the EWMUA system through three metered connections on One Mile Road.

Improvements to the North Campus consist of new 12” combined (fire and domestic) water mains, new services, valves, and hydrants. The new mains will be supplied through an upgraded combined (domestic and fire) metered connection. The existing fire and domestic water mains and the existing domestic water meter chamber on the North Campus are to be abandoned in place and separated from the proposed systems. Improvements to the South Campus consist of a new domestic water metered service, new mains and valves on the campus. Additionally the existing meter chamber and associated piping will be abandoned and removed from the system, the connections to the North Campus (under Princeton-Hightstown Road) will be abandoned and filled with flowable fill. Improvements to the buildings include the addition of backflow prevention equipment at each building’s service line and new fire pumping stations, piping and appurtenances to connect the new station to the buildings existing fire suppression system. As a result of the proposed modifications to the off-site and on-site water distribution systems, each campus will be provided with its own metered water service connection and separate fire suppression systems.

Professional consulting services are also being provided to McGraw Hill in support of negotiations with the EWMUA.
