As part of its 2021 adopted capital budget, the Port Chester Village Board of Trustees approved the replacement and installation of a state-of-art fueling station for the Department of Public Works.
This capital project is broken into two phases. Phase 1 of the project includes all demolition including the removal of two (2) subterranean 6,000-gallon fuel tanks- one which dispenses diesel fuel and the other which dispenses gasoline. In addition, this phase will require the testing of the soil and potential remediation of the immediate excavated area. The village will work in partnership with its approved contract vendor, American Petroleum, Westchester County and the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to complete this initial phase of the project.
During phase 2, the village will implement its planned design for the fuel depot at 82 Fox Island Road. The new depot design provides for all fuel housing (tanks) to be relocated above ground and protected by a state-of-the-art fire suppression system for emergency. Additionally, an upgraded fuel service system will be installed which will allow the village to keep even more accurate accountings of how much fuel is being used, how it is being used, and to improve invoicing to those local organizations that are serviced by the fuel depot.
The village is very excited to see this project break ground in February of 2022 and remains optimistic that it will be completed within 6 to 8 months, or sooner!
