This project is needed to reduce the quantity of untreated sewage released from Kingston's combined sewer into the Rondout Creek. For an introduction to combined sewer systems visit here. As documented in our most recent annual report to the NYSDEC, the Hasbrouck CSO is our most frequently activated overflow (46 events in 2018) and generates the largest overflow volume (83.3 MG in 2018).
In 2017, the City of Kingston hired an engineering firm, Tighe & Bond, to provide cost effective stormwater separation alternatives for the Hasbrouck combined sewer system and to prepare an Engineering Report in a format consistent with the NYSEFC.
The project will result in the completion of phase 1 and 2 (also known as phases A and B in the engineering report) in the phased partial separation plan to separate portions of the public street run-off and sewer collection system. This phase consists of adding 5,365 feet of new sewer lines along Hanratty St., Rondout Dr., Garraghan Dr., Maple St., Stuyvesant St., Dubois Pl., and Murray St. It also involves the installation of storm and sanitary trunklines to facilitate the next phases of sewer separations in the area. This phase is projected to reduce the Hasbrouck CSO (combined sewer overflows) to the river by 54 MG per year, and it will provide the backbone for future separation projects.
