An Important Water Connection for Greenburgh
Our community benefits from the clean, safe, and reliable water provided through the collective actions of the Town of Greenburgh (Town), the Town’s Consolidated Water District, Department of Public Works, and Water Advisory Committee.
As part of the Town’s continuous actions to maintain and upgrade the water supply infrastructure, a very experienced consulting firm, Arcadis, was hired to study the best route to interconnect the Rumbrook and Knollwood Pumping Stations. Joining the two pumping stations is a vital infrastructure upgrade and will allow each station to complement the other’s supply capabilities, better ensure sufficient water volume and pressure during periods of peak demand, and provide a continuous water supply when either station is undergoing maintenance.
Interconnecting the two pumping stations is a complex engineering initiative. The project will require road construction, along the selected route, to place the piping underground. As with any project of this scale, there are many factors that need to be balanced, such as the:
The consulting firm is engaged and will be working to address the above items into mid-2016. As the interconnect project progresses, further information will be available to the public and posted on the Water Advisory Committee's web page (Click here to access the web page).
