Proposal To Build $138M Water Filtration Plant In Harrison Detailed

A local organization has announced a major step forward in a $138 million proposal to build a drinking water filtration plant in Westchester County.

Westchester Joint Water Works, a non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining the drinking water system for up to 100,000 residents in the county, said in an announcement Thursday, Sept. 29, that it had completed the “Final Environmental Impact Statement” for a proposal has drinking water filtration plant in Harrison.

The statement is a step forward in the process aimed at meeting legal filtration obligations for the organization’s raw water source at Rye Lake.

The proposal calls for the construction and operation of a 30 million gallon per day dissolved air flotation/filtration plant on 13.4 acres of land currently owned by the county, WJWW said.

The land would be allocated to WJWW from Westchester County Airport property in exchange for a matching portion of WJWW’s property nearby.

“Our priority is the health and safety of residents in our member communities of Harrison, the town of Mamaroneck and the village of Mamaroneck, and we understand the urgency of advancing this project to provide safe drinking water for our community,” said WJWW Manager Paul Kutzi.

The organization said that once the impact statement is complete, there will be a 10-day waiting period for authorities and the public to view the document.
