Great Neck Sewer District Pump Station Capital Plan Nearing Completion

The capital plan for the upgrading and replacement of the Great Neck Water Pollution Control District’s pump stations is almost complete. Six of the pump stations have been completed, while work is progressing on three more.

Most notably, work is visible at the Steamboat, Piccadilly, and Bayview pump stations.

The pump station nearest to completion is the Steamboat pump station, located on the periphery of the Village of Great Neck. The pump station is on property owned by the Village of Kings Point and is adjacent to the Great Neck Park District’s Kings Point Park property. This critical pump station receives flow from the Merchant Marine Academy, Steppingstone Park, the Village of Kings Point’s village hall and Police Department facilities, as well as the northern area of the Village of Great Neck. No new areas will be serviced as a result of this pump station upgrade.

The existing Steamboat pump station was originally owned by the Village of Great Neck and was constructed around 1935 with the last upgrade performed in 1999. The District took over ownership of this pump station in 2014 as part of its consolidation of the sewer system belonging to the Village of Great Neck.

District Chairman Steve Reiter stated, “Our innovative approach to the construction required the use of heavy equipment to deliver and position prefabricated sections of the pump station, so there has been a lot of activity in the area recently. The good news is that these state-of-the-art construction methods have shortened the timeline for the construction, which is scheduled to be completed early this summer.”

Simultaneously, the District continues its work on the Piccadilly and the Bayview pump stations with both due for completion by early 2025. Once the pump stations are completed, all three will add resiliency and capacity to the District’s entire collection system for decades to come.
