EDITOR’S NOTE: The Bricks & Mortar Report provides updates on major construction projects in Chenango County.
City of Norwich Wastewater Treatment Plant:
• City officials are awaiting consent from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation before moving forward with a $4.5 million project to replace the plant’s 18 rotating biological contactors. Public Works Superintendent Carl Ivarson said the consent would relieve the city from construction permit requirements because the project involves affluent discharge.
• The next step in the now five-year old project would be to finish up plans and specifications by the first of the year and then submit them to the NYSDEC for approval. The project could go to bid sometime in January with work commencing in April.
