Update on AOP (Advanced Oxidation Process) Treatment at 7th Street Facility

The West Hempstead Water District will start construction of our permanent AOP system the week of September 14th 2020. This work is necessary for compliance with New York State’s latest regulation on emerging contaminants. Project completion is expected in spring, 2021.

The project includes a state of the art treatment facility which will involve the digging and pouring of a new building foundation. Since heavy equipment is required, noise disruption is possible. Barring unforeseen circumstances, we expect the work will be done during normal business hours. ­

The renderings that are accompanying this news release are also posted as posters on the 7th Street facility fence.

Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation during this vital project.  If you have any questions, please call the main office at (516) 483-1180.
