COMMUNITY NOTICE: WTC RIVER WATER PUMP STATION SEDIMENT REMOVAL & MECHANICAL REPLACEMENT UPGRADES

UPDATED: May 29, 2024

This week, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) is beginning work on its World Trade Center River Water Pump Station (RWPS) Project, which will address several essential upgrades. Mobilization on Kowsky Plaza will facilitate work operations, including the transportation and set up of trailers, equipment, and supplies, as well as the installation of a temporary fence. The main phase of the project is scheduled to begin in September 2023, when the water dredging work will begin. The work will be conducted in phases over the course the next two years.

Work at the site will be conducted on 8-hour weekday shifts from 8:00AM to 4:00PM. With few exceptions, the adjacent “Sirius” Dog Run and Kowsky Plaza Playground will remain open and accessible over the duration of these efforts.

This effort follows the survey work PANYNJ began earlier this spring employing a barge and dive teams off the BPC Esplanade.

For more information about the RWPS Project, please contact: wtcfeedback@panynj.gov.
