South Shore Water Facility Feeder Project

Project Specifics

As the work at Nassau County’s South Shore Water Reclamation Facility takes shape, PSEG Long Island will support this important improvement by installing new facilities to accommodate the resulting increase in electric demand.  During the next several months, you will see crews working in your area to enhance the electric distribution system. Traffic and parking may be impacted along the project route. 

Project Routes
PSEG Long Island will install two new underground distribution cables and upgrade overhead distribution equipment in portions of the Oceanside, East Rockaway, and Bay Park communities. Specifically we will install two new underground cables and a new duct-and-manhole system.

Underground
Two new underground cables will be installed to exit PSEG Long Island substation located on the south side of Daly Boulevard just east of Lawson Boulevard. The feeders will:

  • Run west on Daly Boulevard until Hampton Road
  • North on Hampton Road until Royal Avenue
  • North on Royal Avenue until River Street
  • West on River Street, underneath the East Rockaway Channel, to Williamson Street
  • West on Williamson Street until 5th Avenue
  • South on 5th Avenue into the South Shore Water Reclamation Facility

 
Project Timeline
Construction is expected to begin in July.

  • Installation of the underground cable is scheduled to start late July/early August.
    • Installation between River Street and Williamson Street underneath the East Rockaway Channel is scheduled to begin in the fall.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please see below for frequently asked questions. 

  • What are the work hours?
    Crews are scheduled for day work on Monday through Friday, with occasional night work. 
  • Will the project include tree trimming?
    Trees growing near power lines significantly increase the chance of power outages and pose safety risks. As we expand and improve our electric circuits, we will trim trees, where necessary, following our utility best practice model (ANSI A300 standards as well as the Best Management Practices Tree Pruning publication): 8 feet to each side; 12 feet above; and 10 feet below the line.
  • Will there be any power outages?
    We do not anticipate any power outages related to this project. In the event that a brief outage is required, all affected customers will be notified in advance of any power outage. 
  • Will there be any traffic interruptions?
    There will be traffic disruptions along the project route. To ensure traffic moves safely, PSEG Long Island will provide cones, flagmen and signage at the work sites, as needed.

A brief note on COVID-19
PSEG Long Island is deeply committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of our customers, employees and our communities. We ask that customers remain in their homes while crews are working nearby. If customers must speak with our crews, we ask that they practice responsible “social distancing” and remain at least 6 feet away to ensure the health of everyone involved. The contractor for this project has provided PSEG Long Island with its safety plan, which meets current regulatory requirements with respect to COVID-19, including social distancing measures.

We are leveraging the guidance of the CDC and state and local authorities in the areas we operate. At PSEG Long Island, we know that our customers rely on us to power their lives and businesses. We are doing our part in fulfilling this commitment. For more information, please visit http://www.psegliny.com/covid19

As always, customer and employee safety is our primary concern. Please be cautious when travelling near our construction work zones.
