NEW YORK STATE THRUWAY ACCOMPLISHES PURE WATER PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

THE NEW YORK STATE THRUWAY AUTHORITY INITIATED A STUDY IN 1964 TO DETERMINE THE CONDITION AND ADEQUACY OF ITS SERVICE-AREA SEWAGE TREATMENT FACILITIES. AS A RESULT OF THIS STUDY, A COMPREHENSIVE MAINTENANCE AND OPERATION PROGRAM WAS ESTABLISHED. STUDIES DISCLOSED THAT EXTENDED AERATION PROCESS WOULD BE BEST FOR SATISFYING THE ESTABLISHED CRITERIA IN TREATMENT OF SEWAGE AT THE THRUWAY-OWNED PLANTS. THE DESIGN OF EXTENDED AERATION TREATMENT FACILITIES AT PRIMARY PLANTS WAS COMPLETED. PLANNED IMPROVEMENTS OF THE PRIMARY PLANTS WILL OFFSET INCREASED FLOWS AND WILL SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCE THE CONTRIBUTION OF THESE TWO PRIMARY PLANTS TO THE RECEIVING STREAM ORGANIC LOADING. WITH THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE ADDED FACILITIES, THE NEW YORK STATE THRUWAY AUTHORITY WILL CONFORM WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF PURE WATERS PROGRAM AND ACCOMPLISH ITS ROLE IN WATER POLLUTION CONTROL WHILE CONTINUING TO UTILIZE EXISTING FACILITIES IN THE MOST EFFICIENT MANNER.
