Bay Park Conveyance Project

New York City Administration for Children’s Services.

Project Owner

Nassau County Department of Public Works (in partnership with the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation)

Project Description

The Project is a partnership between New York State and Nassau County to improve water quality and storm resiliency in Long Islands Western Bays by upgrading existing wastewater management infrastructure. Seven miles of an abandoned aqueduct beneath Sunrise Highway, along with the largest micro-tunneling project in the hemisphere, will connect two existing wastewater treatment plants. In total, the Bay Park Conveyance Project will construct 10.9 miles of new pipeline to convey treated wastewater from the South Shore Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) to the Cedar Creek Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) where it will be discharged through an existing ocean outfall. It builds on $830 million in state and federal funds previously invested in the multi-year resilient rebuild of the South Shore WRF. These projects protect important marine resources and boost local economies with the added benefit of providing better protection to coastal communities against future damage from storms. Pena-Alcantara is serving as the intermediary between the two public agency Owners, the Design-Build Joint Venture, and the technical support team. Most recently, on 5/12/22, Pena-Alcantara facilitated a four-hour Partnering Workshop at the projects Community Information Center at 265 Sunrise Highway in Rockville Centre.
