Project Description

DEP is proposing to upgrade and rehabilitate the Avenue V Pumping Station in order to meet combined sewer overflow (CSO) abatement and flow conveyance requirements established by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) and to comply with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Final CSO policy. DEP would increase wet weather flow capacity at the Avenue V Pumping Station, located at Avenue V and West 11th Street in Brooklyn, from approximately 30 million gallons per day (mgd) to 80 mgd. The Main Building, a national and city eligible landmark structure which houses the pumping equipment, would be upgraded and extensively rehabilitated in coordination with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation (OPRHP) and New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC). In addition, DEP would replace the existing force mains with two new force mains. Construction of the two force mains would run west under Avenue V, 27th Avenue, Cropsey Avenue, Bay 40th Street and the northern shoulder of Shore Parkway, with one force main terminating at a connection with an existing sewer in proximity to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and the other force main connecting to an existing regulator under the intersection of Bath Avenue and 17th Avenue.
