At the time, College Woods was the largest community development project in the United States. It offered affordable and attractive housing to those pursuing the dream of home ownership. The project transformed a blighted area in the Carleton Park area of Central Islip into a prideful community and established covenants and restrictions to help maintain its legacy and promise well into the future. The project included the installation of a sewer collection system, road reconstruction, upgrades to the storm drainage system, and various other roadway improvements.
Hayduk Engineering was responsible for the engineering design and construction supervision of the sewer collection system, pumping station and force main connection into Suffolk County Sewer District #3 – Southwest. The constructed sewer collection system consists of 20,500 LF of 10” and 8” diameter PVC trunk sewers, 118 sanitary manholes, a duplex submersible pumping station, valve chamber, meter pit, control building, emergency generator, and 1,100 LF of 6” diameter PVC force main piping connecting into the Southwest Sewer District.
