Potable Water Reduction
Reduction in Wastewater Discharge
Natural Systems Utilities was awarded a contract with The Durst Organization to design, procure, furnish, manage construction, and operate a complete 50,000 gallon per day water treatment and reuse system for the first phase of Hallets Point. Hallets Point is a 2.4 million square foot redevelopment project that will transform the waterfront of Astoria, Queens, NYC.
“We are proud to build this exciting waterfront project in Astoria.”
– Douglas Durst, Chairman, The Durst Organization
“This onsite reuse system will set the standard in water resource management and serve to preserve our precious supplies.”
– Zach Gallagher, P.E., V.P., Natural Systems Utilities
Hallets Point 1 (HLP1) is a 22 story mixed use residential building that will contain 400 residential units with a 25,000 square foot commercial space located on the first floor. Recent studies performed for the New York State Energy Research Development Authority (NYSERDA) have shown that NYC water reuse systems sized at approximately 50,000 gallons per day and above serving multiple (block-scale) buildings boost triple bottom line benefits. NSU & TDO set a standard for sustainable water resource management with a business case focus. Two (2) additional water reuse systems with heat recovery are being proposed for the remainder of the 2.4 million square foot district after HLP1.
