Dixon Road Culvert Rehabilitation

Queensbury, NY

Chazen assisted the Town with evaluation of a deteriorating 84″ CMP culvert. Chazen determined that the deterioration was due to significant corrosion and joint separation at one of the culvert’s pipe joints. Chazen presented options for both rehabilitation of the culvert via “slip-lining” or complete replacement. While the report was under consideration and design documents for rehabilitation were being developed, the culvert showed additional and advanced deterioration. The Town then deemed the project and emergency and Chazen designed an emergency replacement. Chazen also provided construction administration and observation services for the project.

 

 

 

 

Safe Drinking Water Improvements

Village of Fort Edward & Washington County, NY

Chazen provided design, permitting and construction support for the replacement of approximately 4,235 linear feet of water facilities within the Culver, Factory, McIntyre, Wing, Taylor, Lock, and Canal Streets area. In addition, Chazen provided the same services for Washington County Sewer District #2 for the separation of 1.650 linear feet of combined sewer system in the same area. This project required the complete reconstruction of many of the roads affected by the project. The Village’s portion of the project received nearly $1.2M via a Community Development Block Grant from the NYS Office of Community Renewal.

 

East Greenbush Wastewater Treatment Plant

East Greenbush, NY

Chazen designed extensive improvements to the East Greenbush Wastewater Treatment Plant. Facility and process upgrades totaling $16M increased the Plant’s permitted capacity from 2.2MGD to 4MGD. In addition to designing the improvements, Chazen obtained permits, and provided construction administration inspection services.

Wastewater Treatment Plant and Pump Station Improvements

Lake George, NY

Chazen evaluated and designed improvements to various operational components of the Village of Lake George’s wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). Improvements included a new septage receiving station and associated building and pump station, improvements to the secondary clarifiers, a new secondary sludge transfer pump and repurposing of the existing sludge transfer pump to pump only supernatant from the dewatering belt press. The project also included the rehabilitation of approximately half of the WWTP rapid infiltration beds.

Chazen also designed improvements to the Village’s Shepard’s Park Pump Station. This included replacement of three existing pumps, along with all required controls, SCADA and electrical upgrades.

East High Street Culvert Rehabilitation

Malta, NY

Chazen prepared plans for an emergency replacement of a failed culvert. The project was subject to complex regulatory scheme that included the need for individual NYSDEC stream and wetland disturbance permits, a water quality certification and a Corps of Engineers permit. The joint permit application considered several alternatives and Chazen successfully obtained permits to replace the culvert rather than slip-line it as was originally envisioned.

 

Multi-Road Reconstruction Design

Stillwater, NY

Chazen provided comprehensive design and construction services for the redevelopment of approximately 6.3 miles of roadway in the Town of Stillwater. Surveying services included establishing primary project control employing static GPS methods and secondary control using conventional surveying techniques, right-of-way determination, GPS control, topographic survey, fee taking and easement map preparation. Engineering services included subsurface exploration and interpretive analysis, utility inventory, coordination and relocation planning, and development of a storm water management plan and SWPPP for linear application.

Chazen prepared an expanded EIF for SEQRA compliance which included an evaluation of impacts to surface waters and wetlands, a Toler analysis and an evaluation of ecological impacts. Chazen provided construction administration and inspection services.

Village of Stillwater Water Connectivity

Stillwater, NY

Chazen was retained to evaluate connection to the Saratoga County Water Authority (SCWA) water system for the Village of Stillwater. Based on a preliminary designed engineering report, Chazen made funding applications to state and federal agencies. The project included over eight miles of 12-inch water main connecting the Village water system to the SCWA system. Improvements included chemical feeds, altitude valves, and tank fill piping modifications at the Village’s two water tanks. On behalf of the Village, Chazen was successful in securing a $2M grant from the USDA as well as a $4M, 0% short term hardship loan. Chazen provided grant and loan administration services with each funding agency as well as construction administration and inspection services.

 

 

Brown’s Beach Redevelopment

Stillwater, NY

The Town of Stillwater acquired 7.3 acres of waterfront property on the southern end of Saratoga Lake. Known as Brown’s Beach, the property was originally established in 1918 as a family resort and historically was used as a privately-operated recreational area including at times an amusement park, beach, marina, picnic area, bath house and bed & breakfast.

Chazen worked with the Town to craft a plan to breathe new life into Brown’s Beach and provide residents and tourists with the only public beach access to Saratoga Lake. The improvements included restoration of the existing restaurant, bed and breakfast, construction of a new concession building with bathroom facilities, a new open-air waterfront pavilion, restoration of the existing marina, provisions for public access and parking, and restoration of the beach and bathing area. Chazen subsequently designed many of the improvements and provided construction services.

Water Plant Improvements

South Glens Falls, NY

Chazen was retained by the Village to evaluate a series of 20 groundwater spring boxes and to provide treatment for drinking water deemed to be Groundwater Under the Direct Influence of Surface Water. After considering several alternatives, the Village decided to expand its existing water treatment plant to use cartridge filtration and to continue to use chlorination as a disinfectant. The treatment plant expansion designed by Chazen provides for roughing filters, a five-micron filter series and a one-micron absolute finishing filter prior to disinfection and pumping to a 1.0MG storage tank.
