IMPROVEMENTS CHAMBER RECONSTRUCTION
YONKERS, NEW YORK
The Hillview Reservoir is a 90-acre storage reservoir in southeastern Yonkers, New York. It was built within a six-year period from 1909–1915 by the New York City Board of Water Supply to receive water from the newly constructed Catskill Aqueduct, which drained water from the Ashokan Reservoir and sent it down into the Kensico Reservoir, where it would, in turn, be drained back into a continuation of the Catskill Aqueduct, and sent into the Hillview Reservoir.
The project consisted of the improvements and chamber reconstruction at the Hillview Reservoir in Yonkers, New York. The Hillview Reservoir is a critical water link from Yonkers, New York to areas of the Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens, New York.
L&J established plumbing and fire protection design criteria, developed design, and prepared layout plans for the required systems. Additionally, the firm selected equipment and materials, prepared performance design criteria, preliminary layout, and outline specifications.
L&J also provided detailed information to the cost estimator to establish budget accuracy and during the 65%, 75% percent, and 90% review, met with the architect, as well as, the client to provide continuous review of the constructability of the systems.
