Proposed Storm Sewer Outfall Serving Edgemere Section of Queens

The New York City Department of Design and Construction (DDC), on behalf of the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP), is proposing a new storm sewer outfall serving the Edgemere section of Queens which is largely a residential area with commercial uses along Beach Channel Drive.  The proposed outfall would extend along an unbuilt section of Beach 42nd Street from Beach Channel Drive north to the Norton Basin within a 40-foot-wide DEP sewer easement. The project would be constructed within Queens Block 15960, Lot 60. The project also includes tidal wetland restoration, on- and off-site, and the reconstruction of a New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) parking lot which lies within the project area easement and would be affected by the proposed construction.
