Sustainable urban development reaches new heights in downtown Manhattan with Battery Park. Battery Park City is a redevelopment area of 92 acres under the control of the NYC Battery Park City Authority (BPCA) of New York City.
- Combined Sewer Overflow Mitigation
- All buildings receive comprehensive water reuse program rates from NYCDEP
- Membrane Bioreactors
- Ultraviolet and Ozone Disinfection
“This was a very important partnership for us. They not only implemented the plant for us but they maintained it, they monitored the water and made sure it was ran efficiently.” – Miro
Natural Systems Utilities (NSU) designed, built and currently operates the wastewater reuse systems and rainwater recycling systems within six Battery Park City Buildings.
These campus utilities systems have consistently achieved greater than 50% water consumption reduction and a greater than 60% reduction in wastewater discharge (compared to similar base residential buildings in NYC). These water recycling project savings are the direct result of wastewater reuse and water conservation. Battery Park City has been developed as a model for scaling water conservation and reuse projects in urban redevelopment and campus-scale settings.
