At approximately 11:00AM last Wednesday, our drilling contractor broke ground on Governors Island… except they did it from the ground up!
Horizontal Directional Drill.
Is that a submarine poking out in front of the old commissary? No, it’s a horizontal directional drill seeing daylight for the first time in weeks after burrowing underneath the Harbor, all the way from Red Hook, Brooklyn.
This “peek-a-boo” moment marks an exciting milestone in our effort to restore potable water to Governors Island. By the end of this year, over 2300 linear feet of new water pipe will be installed beneath the Buttermilk Channel. In 2014, our dedicated crew will continue to expand the potable water network throughout the north portion of the Island, as well as to the newly constructed park and public space. There’s more work to be done, but we are on schedule to ensure that potable water is fully restored by the end of next year. Future tenants and visitors can look forward to taking a sip of delicious Brooklyn water!
