This project intends to excavate the piping near the Hudson View Storage tank and install a new valve to isolate the tank from the Rombout Water supply district. Eliminating (i.e. isolating) the tank from the system will resolve a Department of Health violation. NOTE: removal of the tank is NOT part of the project at this time. Tank will be drained and secured. We will then take advantage of the improved water pressure supply coming from City of Beacon water by re-adjusting existing pressure control valves where necessary and install a new pressure control valve in a new sub-surface vault. Next we will retire one pump station in the district as the higher pressures will make its use unnecessary and we will modify one other pump station to improve pumping efficiency due to the new improved pressure profile. The Project Cost Estimate is $300,000 funded by the District with available Reserves. Request for Proposals will be issued in August. Field construction work to begin fall 2018 and Installation target completion will be early 2019.
Phase I of this project began on June 11, 2018.
As of August 14, 2018, 83% of the water meters included in Phase I had been replaced or retrofitted to meet the program specifications.
