Tag: Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant

Recently Gov. Andrew Cuomo came to Stony Brook University to announce a major initiative to address New York’s water woes. His proposal would allocate $6 million for a new comprehensive groundwater study for Long Island to further examine levels of saltwater intrusion and chemical contamination–essentially the byproducts of over-pumping our aquifer and not having enough sewers.

"One step at a time. Haha. Your dad prob needs to make a call."

The pipe would be an addition to the sewage treatment plant that is already being rebuilt after being flooded by 9 feet of water during Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

“We need some more financial assistance from our federal and state governments."

The funding "is just what they need to rebuild and make crucial repairs and upgrades."

Some questioned why the full legislature didn’t vote on it, others eyed the company’s track record—but the finances remain unclear.

“It smells like a sewer. Like cesspool trucks had been dumping in there.”

The county is seeking $690 million to construct an ocean outfall pipe.

“The report illustrates the noxious effect excess nitrogen pollution has on marshland systems that help to protect Long Island."

Nassau officials held their first public hearing on a nearly $1 billion plant repair project this week.
