Long Beach Medical Arts Pavilion - Effective Tuesday, September 21, 2021

The accumulation of water on the Long Beach Medical Arts Pavilion site is ground water which is slated to be safely removed so construction can resume. We have secured approval to commence the dewatering effort from all governmental oversight agencies, including the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, and we will begin mobilization later this week. You should be prepared to see dewatering equipment like Weir tanks, pumps and hoses.
EW Howell, our general contractor, will work directly with the Keller, a leading ground water control company, who will be mobilizing at the site later this week. The mobilization effort will take approximately 10 days. The full dewatering operation is anticipated to run 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. Pumped water will be filtered and treated and then safely redirected into Reynolds Channel. The water being pumped into the channel has met all environmental standards for this type of operation. We will be pumping the ground water around the clock to a level down to a point where concrete can be formed and poured. We will not be using a diesel generator for this operation. Instead, we secured a quieter and more environmentally friendly publicly metered electric service from PSE&G. The remaining pile caps, footings and foundation activities will recommence during this dewatering process.
