W H M Plumbing of East Setauket is the recipient of a $3.362 million contract from the Village of Northport to complete general contracting for the village's sewage treatment plant upgrade.
The upgrade includes housing denitrification, two additions, and pH equipment. Construction is expected to begin in March and to be completed within the DEC’s 2014 deadline.
The contract was delayed because engineering changes needed to be made following Hurricane Sandy. Under the new plans, the facility's floor will be raised an additional two feet above the 100 year flood mark to withstand future storms.
Upgrades to the Northport sewage treatment plant are moving ahead despite uncertainty over Suffolk County funding, village trustees said.
