$15 Million Project Underway to Overhaul Storm Sewer System

The existing combined sewer system will then be converted into a sanitary sewer system and joined with an additional 2,900 feet of new sanitary sewer lines being installed under the project.

A $15.2 million infrastructure project in College Point, N.Y. is replacing old cast iron water mains, replacing sanitary sewer lines, and installing a new storm sewer system in an area that has experienced street flooding as well as sewage overflows into local waterways from combined sewers during storms. The project is being managed by the New York City Department of Design and Construction (DDC) for the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), and is currently on track to be completed in summer 2018, three months ahead of the original schedule.
