NYCDEP Oakwood Beach WRRF Effluent Pumping Facilities

Staten Island, New York

Project Overview

MFS Consulting Engineers & Surveyor, DPC provided Land Surveying and Site/Civil Engineering Services to support the design of the temporary and permanent effluent pumping facilities at Oakwood Beach WRRF Project.

Staten Island, New York

Project Details

MFS performed a topographic field survey to locate the apparent accessible above ground physical features, such as, but not limited to; buildings, curbs, edge of pavement, drives, striping, sidewalks, fences, walls, utility/light poles, signs, street trees, tree lines. Cross sections of paved surfaces were surveyed at a minimum of fifty feet intervals and at low/high points. Spot elevations were obtained at a spacing sufficient to develop contours at an interval of 0.5 foot. Break line features such as top/bottom of curb, edge of pavement, top/bottom of slopes/swales/banks/walls, etc. were located.

MFS located the apparent accessible surface utilities including hardware such as sewer holes, catch basins, trench drains, valve covers, utility/light poles, hydrants, etc. MFS located any apparent utility mark-out visible at the time of the field survey that was marked out by others. For storm drains and sanitary sewers, MFS obtained measurements to determine inverts and pipe sizes at accessible sewer holes and catch basins. Subsurface utilities such as water, gas, electric and communication were depicted based on surface features and available mapping.

During the Schematic Document Phase, MFS’ site/civil team performed a site visit to document the existing site conditions; surface utilities, equipment, buildings, roadway, and site infrastructure, as well as associated facilities that might have been impacted by the new construction. MFS then developed a photographic log, which included detailed descriptions, accompanied by photo-location mapping.

After the completion of the field work, MFS prepared an Existing Conditions Assessment Report, which summarized the findings from site visits, the review of historical data, the review of as-built drawings, and a comparison with current conditions. Upon NYCDEP’s review of the report, MFS progressed into design development to prepare the site design for the permanent effluent pumping facility which consists of a new standby generator, new electrical service building, new electrical duct banks and conduits, new access roadway.
