WCN Editorial Team 9 Nov 2020 NORTH AMERICA ENERGY & UTILITIES

Western Bays Constructors Joint Venture has secured a design-build contract for the $439m Bay Park Conveyance Project in Nassau County in the US state of New York.

The company is a joint venture between John P. Picone and Northeast Remsco Construction.

The project is being developed in a partnership between the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) and the Nassau County Department of Public Works (NCDPW).

The project will reduce 19 billion gallons of treated wastewater and over 95% of the nitrogen loading to Reynolds Channel and the Western Bays each year.

By upgrading the existing wastewater management infrastructure, the project will improve water quality and storm resiliency in Long Island's Western Bays.

The Conveyance Project will transport the treated water from the Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) located in Nassau County, New York, to the Cedar Creek Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) ocean outfall pipe by constructing two underground tunnels and repurposing an abandoned aqueduct.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that the design-build contract will be managed by NYSDEC.

The Nassau County Department of Public Works will own and operate the new facilities upon completion of the project.

NYSDEC commissioner Basil Seggos said: “This innovative project will protect the critical ecosystems of Western Bays and bolster coastal resiliency.

“Today's announcement advances the Bay Park Conveyance Project and will expedite our efforts to project Long Island's environment with creative solutions, bringing us another step closer to restoring the health and resiliency of Nassau County's Western Bays.”
