A local organization has announced progress on a proposal to build a $138 million drinking water filtration plant in Westchester County.
Westchester Joint Water Works, a nonprofit organization that works to maintain the drinking water system for up to 100,000 residents in the county, said last Thursday that it has completed the “Final Environmental Impact Statement” for a proposed water filtration plant. Drinking in Harrison.
The declaration is a step forward in the process to meet legal filtration obligations for the organization’s raw water source at Rye Lake.
The proposal calls for the construction and operation of a 30-million-gallon-per-day dissolved air filtration/flotation plant on 13.4 acres of land currently owned by the county, WJWW said.
The land would be assigned to WJWW from the Westchester County Airport property in exchange for an equal share of the nearby WJWW property.
“Our priority is the health and safety of the residents of our member municipalities of Harrison, the City of Mamaroneck, and the Town of Mamaroneck, and we understand the urgency of moving this project forward to provide clean water to our community,” said Manager of WJWW said Paul Kutzy.
The organization reported that after the impact statement is completed, there is a 10-day waiting period to allow agencies and the public to review the document.
