Bergen Point Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion and Upgrade
Located in the southwest quadrant of Suffolk County, Sewer District No. 3 serves a 57 square mile area with over 950 miles of sewer lines and 14 pumping stations. LiRo is providing program and construction management services for improvements to the Bergen Point Waste Water Treatment Plant, which processes the effluent from the district prior to release to the ocean outfall. The project consists of four individual tasks:
- Installation of a new UV disinfection system to neutralize microorganisms in the effluent, providing improved worker safety and resulting in cleaner discharge into the Great South Bay.
- 10 MGD expansion of the plant to provide additional treatment capacity.
- Upgrade of the influent grit handling facility to improve operation and maintenance costs.
- Replacement of the final effluent pumps and the addition of a new pump to provided redundant capacity.
