Project Description

DEP is reviewing the potential for significant impacts from the Tallman Island TI-2/TI-3 Water Pollution Control Plant Upgrade Program. The proposed action consists of two contracts: Contract TI-2: Emergency Main Sewage (EMS) Pumping System Modification and Replacement, and Contract TI-3: Plant Upgrade Program (PUP). The PUP would provide for Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) by improving the aeration system. The PUP will also include the replacement of the aged main sewage pumps, blowers and drive engines with electric motors. The proposed action was developed to ensure continued compliance with wastewater permit limitations, maintain a safe working environment for the future, and meet the recently mandated citywide nitrogen removal program.

The Tallman Island Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) is located at 127-01 Powell Cover Road at the western edge of Powell’s Cove in the College Point section of Queens, New York. All of the proposed action upgrades to the Tallman Island WPCP would be within the existing boundaries of the facility. The project consent order completion date is December 2010.
