Mineola, NY – the completion of a feasibility study which determined that an existing, non-utilized 72-inch steel water main pipeline running from Valley Stream under Sunrise Highway to the Suffolk line has the ability to be repurposed into a force main to convey treated wastewater effluent from the South Shore Water Reclamation Facility in Bay Park to the Cedar Creek Water Pollution Control Plant – thereby strengthening our shoreline, protecting our marine life and improving our environment for future generations. Accordingly, the Department of Public Works has issued a Request For Proposal (RFP) from qualified firms to provide detailed design services for this Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant Ocean Outfall – Effluent Diversion Project, which diverts treated sewage from western bays to two and a half miles off our coast and thereby reduces nitrogen in our waterways.

About Grant Park
Built in 1955, Grant Park sits on 35 acres and features a popular pond where residents can fish for bluegills, carp and largemouth bass. In the winter, residents can ice skate at the Park’s hockey rink. Full tennis and basketball courts sit in the middle of the park, next to a large playground. The park also has a walking/jogging path that circles much of the park. There are two picnic areas: one under the trees next to a horse shoe court, and the other, next to the pond and playgrounds.
