Wincoram Commons Pumping Station and Force Main

Wincoram Commons is a 150-unit affordable housing rental community which also incorporates 15,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor of several of its buildings in a village type setting. The owner is a partnership of a private Rochester, NY developer and the Community Development Corporation of Long Island (CDCLI).

Hayduk Engineering was originally retained to design the sewage treatment plant (STP) modifications necessary for the Wincoram Commons to connect to another existing local, privately owned Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) treatment facility at Bretton Woods. During the design phase, we determined that structural deficiencies in the existing STP hampered this proposal, and we initiated discussions with Suffolk County, ultimately receiving approval for connection to Suffolk County Sewer District #11 – Selden.

The project included connection to a Suffolk County Sewer District and two directional drillings of the force main, under a State Highway (Route 25) and a private road respectively, as well as open cut installations in easements and public roads. The new facility includes a duplex submersible sanitary pumping station, valve chamber, meter pit, control building, emergency generator, and a 4,700 LF force main connecting to SCSD #11. The Wincoram Commons pumping station has been operational since summer 2015.

This project was awarded the 2017 Long Island Builders Institute Gold Award for Engineering Design.
