INTERMUNICIPAL AGREEMENT TO IMPROVE THE WEST 3RD STREET PUMP STATION
Westchester County Legislators Tyrae Woodson-Samuels, District 13, and David Tubiolo, District 14, together representing Mount Vernon, are proud to announce an Intermunicipal Agreement (IMA) between Westchester County and the City of Mount Vernon for the West 3rd Street Sewer Project.
Under this IMA, the County will coordinate with the City of Mount Vernon and partners in New York State Government to fund and design the construction of the West Third Street Pump Station and Sanitary Sewer Project. This project will serve to address the discharges of raw sewage and other pollutants from storm sewer systems into the Hutchinson and Bronx Rivers. Additionally, the improvements on the pump station will serve to assist areas that are prone to persistent flooding.
“The implementation of this project is poised to mitigate the burden on the community’s infrastructure. The presence of a solitary pump stationed outside Levister Towers serves as the sole catalyst for the flushing of approximately 1,000 toilets in the vicinity. This $9 million investment holds immense potential in augmenting the standard of living for all residents in the city of Mount Vernon,” Legislator Woodson-Samuels shared with Black Westchester.
“I’m proud to support my colleague Legislator Woodson-Samuels and the Mount Vernon community with this much needed project. Upgrading our infrastructure and sewage system is of vital importance to maintaining public health,” Legislator Tubiolo added.
