RYE BROOK, NY, Dec. 27, 2013 -- A new stormwater drainage system is set to be installed along the New Jersey coastline to protect against future storm damage throughout the region.

Xylem Inc. (NYSE:XYL), a global water technology company focused on addressing the world's most challenging water issues, has been awarded a $2.7 million contract to supply the equipment and technology for the system. The project is a key part of a $265 million reconstruction program being implemented in the area following the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy in October 2012.

The new, state-of-the-art drainage system will consist of 47 Flygt Slimline pumps and 27 smaller Flygt submersible N-pumps in nine pump stations located at various intervals along the 12-mile stretch of road that was severely damaged by the storm. Flygt MultiSmart pump controllers will ensure the efficient operation of the system. Each of the nine pump stations will have a capacity of moving between 25,000 and 35,000 gallons of water per minute.

Installation of the new system will begin before the end of 2013 with part of the new system due to be in operation before summer 2014.
