Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced Western Bays Constructors Joint Venture has been selected as the design-build contractor responsible for the construction of the $439 million Bay Park Conveyance Project in Nassau County. The project will spark the ecological recovery of the degraded Western Bays by reducing nitrogen released to the Reynolds Channel and Western Bays each year and create conditions for a rapid rebound of ecosystem renewal, which in turn will support region-wide resiliency. Specifically, this will be accomplished by conveying the Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant's treated effluent to the Cedar Creek Water Pollution Control Plant's ocean outfall through construction oftwo underground tunnels and repurposing an abandoned aqueduct.
