395199 - New York City Multi-jurisdictional Water Supply Project Permitting - Strategies and Lessons Learned

Tuesday, June 5
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: Lakeshore B

In order to maintain NYC’s water supply during a future, planned outage of the Delaware Aqueduct Rondout West Branch Tunnel which transmits roughly 50 percent of the City’s raw water, a 74-mile length of the 100-year old companion Catskill Aqueduct must be rehabilitated ahead of time to optimize flow during that outage. The project stretches through four counties and 17 municipalities as well as state and federal regulatory jurisdictions, compounding the permitting complexities that translate into design-bid-build schedule and budget risks. This presentation will describe strategies engaged to mitigate 1) project delay risks related to lengthy review of complex permit applications; and 2) the risks that unexpected permit conditions pose to construction budget and schedule. It will also cover instances where the strategies worked well from inception and, alternatively, where adaptation was required to make sure regulatory approvals were acquired in time to allow the construction to stay on schedule and on budget.
