The Village of Brewster, in cooperation with the Putnam County MS4 Coordinating Committee and NYCDEP, is proposing to construct an Extended Detention Basin on an approximately 17.71 acre parcel of land owned by the City of New York. The project has been proposed for compliance with the enhanced phosphorous removal strategies contained in NYS SPDES General Permit GP-0-10-002. Once completed, the project will result in the removal of 67.8 kg of Total Phosphorous from stormwater runoff annually. At present, a portion of the project site is occupied by an existing stormwater treatment practice which includes a sediment basin followed by a vegetated swale. The existing treatment practice was constructed in 2003 to remove sediment from runoff entering Wells Brook, a NYSDEC designated Class-C stream that discharges into the East Branch Croton River. Under the current project proposal, the existing stormwater treatment practice will be retrofitted to include an Extended Detention Basin designated to remove Total Phosphorous from runoff for storm events up to and including a "90%" storm event.
J. Robert Folchetti & Associates assisted the Village of Brewster in securing a $25.4 million grant from the New York City Department of Environmental Protection to upgrade and operate its wastewater facilities and to extend service throughout a major part of the Village. Work performed by JRFA included the following: upgrading of the NYC owned wastewater treatment plant to bring it into conformance with the new Croton Watershed removal criteria, siting of the expanded facilities; preparing a plan for the Village to take over ownership of the wastewater treatment facility, which included a lump sum monetary grant to cover operational costs; design (preparation of plans and specifications) of a 240,000 gpd wastewater treatment plan which includes tertiary treatment, plus a microfiltration system in conformance with NYC Watershed Regulations; design of 7,500 square foot NYCDEP Laboratory on the site; securing of all permits at the State, County and local level and construction administration of the wastewater treatment plant and laboratory construction
