UPDATE ON THE NEW FLOOD CONTROL PUMP STATION FOR THE LOWER SECTION OF THE VILLAGE of PORT DICKINSON. As of June 17, 2014 We have been notified that the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has awarded a contract for the construction of the new flood relief pumping facility located adjacent to the end of Watson Ave. along the levee. The project will involve the construction and installation of the following: A new Flood Pump that will have an increased pumping capacity from the current 6,000 gallons per minute (GPM) to an increased volume of 9,500 GPM. The new flood pump will be Propane Powered, thus alleviating the need for backup electric generators during electrical power outages. A small propane powered backup generator will be installed to maintain telemetry equipment and lighting in the event of a power outage. A Fully automatic pump station control system is being installed. A system to allow remote monitoring and alarm notification of the pumping station status including river water level and ponding water levels. A portable pump pond facility is being constructed alongside of the levee in the event additional pumping capacity is needed and portable pumps are required. Also a concrete discharge pad near the top of the levee on the river side is being constructed to allow for the discharge from the portable pump hoses. These pads will prevent the water discharge from eroding the levee. This “pond” will allow portable pumps to continue to operate even during high water levels that in the past have restricted portable pump operations. Construction is expected to begin in July 2014 and is being done by a local construction company that has completed several NYSDEC flood control projects.
