Good call: Emergency repair of Gloucester Township pump deemed good call

    Public works officials in Gloucester Township report the decision to make an emergency repair of a pump ended up saving thousands of dollars.

    According to Gloucester Township Patch, Public Works Director Len Moffa told council members earlier this week the pump moved water to the sprinkler system that covers nearly half of the grass at the Gloucester Township Community Park.

    Gloucester Township Patch says the emergency repair saved roughly $16,500 to $26,500 by keeping the park’s grass watered.  Township officials say it would have cost $30,000 to $40,000 to replace the park’s grass had it died.
