3/2/21-Update on Water Authority of Western Nassau Project on Cisney Avenue – Water Treatment Plant – Proposed New Building

As discussed at the Village Board meeting on January 19th, The Water Authority of Western Nassau is proposing a new structure at the property located at  149 Cisney Avenue to accommodate the new treatment equipment necessary to meet the updated State Health Department domestic water requirements, specifically to treat 1,4-dioxane.  The structure will be built around the treatment equipment that is currently under construction at the rear of the property along the LIRR. 

Although not required, the Water Authority and their consultants have been working cooperatively with the Village Trustees and the Architectural Review Board in order to assure the new building will be designed to blend in with the neighborhood.  The image on the next page is a rendition of the agreed upon design superimposed in an actual photo of the site.   The work on the building is set to begin this summer, after the treatment equipment has been installed.  The Water Authority has also agreed to adding additional landscaping to mask the equipment planned for the area.

A phase 2, timeline to be determined, will include some changes to the existing building on site. 
As a part of this phase, the Village has requested improvements to the chain link fence and landscaping along the front of the property as well.  This scope of work is currently in preliminary design and will be shared once the Village receives more information.

Further updates will be communicated once they have been confirmed.
