Plumbing for NYC Park Structure Behind Schedule

By Ryan Berlin Plumbing & Restrooms

Ferry Point Park in Throggs Neck, New York was scheduled to get a new comfort facility, however the facility’s restrooms and electrical are behind schedule.

That facility, located near the picnic table area, is expected to be completed this month. Unfortunately, the actual plumbing and electrical work for the facility are not.

“The building’s shell is scheduled for completion this summer and is on schedule,” said a Parks Department spokesperson. “The comfort station will be completed in its entirety (including plumbing, electric and mechanical) by the end of this year.”

The spokesman cited Wick’s Law, which requires separate bid contracts for construction, electrical, HVAC and plumbing on publicly funded projects over $3 million, for the delay.

The project was green lighted a decade ago and was partly funded by $2 million from the Croton Filtration Plant Mitigation Funds.
