Algonquin anticipates continuing product pipe pullback in mid-October, which will necessitate three to four days of 24 hours a day/7 days a week work to complete pulling the pipe across the Hudson River. All affected residents and St. Patrick’s Church are being notified of the new timeframe and will be offered the opportunity to relocate at Algonquin’s expense.
Through October 4, Algonquin will be hydrostatically testing the pull-back strings. While work will be over several days, the actual pretesting will last for about an hour. The plan is to work from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Part of this process requires the release of air which could potentially produce a high pitch whistling noise. The release of air will be directed away from residences to minimize the noise. Our team will be monitoring the noise level, and if it exceeds the permissible level under the Town Code for a long duration, affected residents will be provided the opportunity to relocate at Algonquin’s expense. A flyer notifying residents of the abovementioned information was hand-delivered.
Algonquin is well aware of the effect that construction has had on the Town of Cortlandt and Village of Buchanan and is making every effort to complete construction by the end of October while continuing to mitigate impacts.
