GRAY PROJECTS UPDATE


Gray Projects Update Progress of Projects Under Construction Clinton CSO Storage Facility Project (Construction Phase) The contractor continued construction activities associated with the storage facility that will collect 6 million gallons of combined sewage from 8 downtown Syracuse CSOs during wet weather events. The contractor completed the excavation of the 84” conveyance to the final elevation and installed the 3 rd and final tier of struts associated with the support of excavation. The west chamber and the tunnel/box culvert (from Station 0+00 to 5+50) were excavated to tier #2. The east chamber draw down was also completed in June. CSO 022/045 Sewer Separation Project (Construction Phase) Construction and restoration activities in CSO area 045 were completed in June and are awaiting a final walkthrough to determine punch list items. In CSO Area 022, all sewer work within West Genesee Street from curb to curb was completed and the street was restored to grade. Final sidewalk restoration and top course paving will occur later in the summer. The new sanitary sewer was installed in North Franklin Street between West Willow and Herald Place. The plumbing contractor, Joy Process Mechanical (JPM), continued their interior and exterior plumbing modifications completing internal and external piping for 2 properties. Once complete, the discharge of combined sewage from CSOs 022 and 045 will be eliminated and all sanitary sewage will be transmitted to Metro via the Main Interceptor Sewer (MIS). Harbor Brook Interceptor Sewer (HBIS) Replacement and CSO Abatement Project (Construction Phase) In June, the contractor continued work on the Delaware/Grand Rain Garden and Bioretention Area and this segment of the project is approximately 60% complete. To date the project has installed 7,503 LF of new 18” to 36” interceptor sewer between Velasko Road and West Fayette Street on the west side of Syracuse. In addition, 5,222 LF of new local sewers were installed, ranging in size from 8” to 42” in diameter. The sewer installation is 100% completed and the project overall is approximately 98% complete. The project is anticipated to be completed by July 2012. Lower Harbor Brook CSO Conveyance Project (Construction Phase) Construction continued on the conveyance sewers from CSO 003 and 004 that will transmit combined sewage during wet weather events to the new storage tank. The contractor completed backfilling of new 48” conveyance sewer installed between manholes HW-4 and HW-5 in Hiawatha Boulevard; and completed installation support of excavation, piles, and pile cap between manhole HW-1 and Station 4+71. Lower Harbor Brook CSO Storage Facility Project (Construction Phase) The contractor completed the installation of the 60” diameter pipeline and backfilled to the surface. Jet grouting activities for the storage tank continued in June as well. The storage facility will store combined sewage from the three CSOs (003, 004 & 063) during storm events, and transmit the sewage after the storm to Metro via the HBIS. Midland CSO 044 Abatement Project (Construction Phase) Construction continued on the 96” CSO conveyance pipeline that will connect CSO 044 in South Avenue to the Midland RTF. In June, the contractor began installation of the control panel, wiring and conduit for electrical facilities associated with the flushing chambers; installed the stormwater system to the CSO 044 outfall near Dearborn Avenue.; installed an additional catch basin, road base and curbing, and cold milled areas along West Castle Street; and graded the side banks along the Creek from South Ave westward toward flushing station A.

Clinton CSO Storage Onondaga County Trolley Lot, Syracuse Clinton/Lower MIS Storage Facility 6,000,000 gallons 114,000,000 gal/yr 8 12/ 31/13 $70,640,000 7/14/11 Jett Industries

Project Description: The Clinton CSO Storage Facility Project is a 6 million gallon combined sewer overflow storage facility that will be constructed in the parking area between the elevated rail tracks and Onondaga Creek just south of the Armory Square area of downtown Syracuse (formerly known as the Trolley Lot). During wet weather events, the facility’s three, parallel 18-foot diameter, underground storage tunnels will capture flow from 8 combined sewer overflows (CSOs) in the vicinity of the former Trolley Lot. The wastewater will be stored in the tunnels until it can be conveyed via the main interceptor sewer to the Syracuse Metropolitan Sewage Treatment Plant (Metro) for treatment. The off-site conveyance piping, which will transmit the flow to the facility, was installed under the Clinton CSO Phase 1 and 2A conveyances projects completed in 2009. There will be additional on-site conveyance piping installed under this project to connect the existing sewers to the new facility. In addition to the tunnels there will be two above ground structures located at either end (east and west) of the parking lot which provide access to the tunnels and house the pumping, grit collection and odor control facilities Green Components: To further enhance the sustainability of the facility, the project includes green infrastructure components. The stormwater runoff from the entire site that measures approximately 275,000 square feet or 6.3 acres will be managed by green infrastructure. The stormwater from the area surrounding the main structure on the western half of the site will be collected by a series of catch basins and stormwater piping that will outfall into two bioretention basins. The bioretention basins will allow the stormwater to infiltrate into the ground rather than immediately runoff to the creek. In addition, stormwater runoff from the eastern half of the project site, to be restored as a parking area, will be directed to a subsurface collection facility and used to flush the storage tunnels to clear them of grit and debris that may have settled or been left behind after the stored combined sewage was transmitted to Metro. In addition, a green roof will be installed on the west building. Construction Update: In June, the contractor continued construction activities associated with the storage facility that will collect 6 million gallons of combined sewage from 8 downtown Syracuse CSOs during wet weather events. The contractor completed the excavation of the 84� conveyance to the final elevation and installed the 3rd and final tier of struts associated with the support of excavation. The west chamber and the tunnel/box culvert (from Station 0+00 to 5+50) were excavated to tier #2. The east chamber draw down was also completed in June.

CSO 022/045 Sewer Separation Onondaga County Syracuse Clinton/Lower MIS & Midland Sewer Separation 1,000,000 gal/yr 2 12/ 31/12 General - $4,581,888 Plumbing - $1,031,235 November 29, 2011 General – J. J. Lane Plumbing – Joy Process Mechanical

Project Description: In 2000, the separations of 13 separate CSO basins were designed to the 95 percent stage. The CSO areas represented basins whose full separation would be cost effective compared to other CSO abatement technologies. The remaining basins where the full separation has not been constructed were CSO areas 022 and 045. CSO area 022 is located in downtown Syracuse and the tributary sewers are located in North Franklin, West Genesee, and Willow streets. The proposed work to be performed includes 2,000 linear feet (LF) of new sanitary sewer; 800 LF of sewer lining; and twenty (20) internal building separations. CSO Area 045 is located south of downtown Syracuse with the outfall at the intersection of West Castle Street, Hudson Street, and Onondaga Creek. The combined sewage tributary to this outfall is conveyed by combined sewers located in Crescent and Hudson streets. The proposed work to be performed includes: 700 LF of new storm sewer in Hudson and Crescent streets, 1200 LF of sewer lining to convert the existing combined sewers in Crescent and Hudson streets to sanitary sewers, rehabilitation of the existing sanitary sewer in Rich Street between Hudson and Onondaga Creek, and one (1) private property separation. Green Components: The County has successfully applied its “Greening the Gray” mission to the project through the implementation of Green Infrastructure as it related to the reconstruction of the Pocket Park on the corner of West Genesee and North Clinton Streets. The park had fallen into disrepair due to settlement issues and will be rehabilitated with green components under the CSO 022 project. Project Update: Construction and restoration activities in CSO area 045 were completed in June and are awaiting a final walkthrough to determine punch list items. In CSO Area 022, all sewer work within West Genesee Street from curb to curb was completed and the street was restored to grade. Final sidewalk restoration and top course paving will occur later in the summer. The new sanitary sewer was installed in North Franklin Street between West Willow and Herald Place.

HBIS Replacement & CSO Abatement Onondaga County Harbor Brook Corridor Fayette St. to Velasko Rd. Harbor Brook Interceptor Replacement 36,000,000 gal/yr 9 6/30/2012 $21,536,849 11/2/09 J.J. Lane Construction

Project Description: The HBIS Replacement Project provides for a much needed upgrade to the existing Harbor Brook Interceptor between West Fayette Street and Velasko Road on the west side of Syracuse. This length of the interceptor sewer conveys dry weather flow and a portion of the combined flow from CSOs 009, 010, 011, 013, 014, 015, 016, 017, and 018 for conveyance to Metro for treatment. The existing interceptor is a U-shaped cast-in-place concrete pipe constructed in the 1920s and has fallen into disrepair. Due to the shape and age of the HBIS, flow restrictions have developed which have decreased capacity and increased infiltration in some areas. The project includes the installation of 7,600 linear feet (LF) of new HBIS ranging in size from 18- to 36-inches in diameter, 1,500 LF of new local sewers, rehabilitation of 860 LF of 30-inch brick sewer, installation of 4 new regulator manholes, and rehabilitation or replacement of 2500 LF of Harbor Brook Culvert. In addition, during construction the available funding allowed CSO Areas 013 and 016 to be completely separated which will increase CSO capture and eliminate two CSO discharge points. As a result, the capture projection for this project is anticipated to be 0.9 percent or 36 million gallons. Green Components: In addition the County has successfully applied its “Greening the Gray” mission to the HBIS Replacement Project. The GI components incorporated into this gray construction project include the installation of approximately 40 enhanced tree basins with infiltration zones and the construction of a bioretention area that will manage stormwater runoff from an area of approximately 3.2 acres. The enhanced tree basins will be located on Hartson, Herriman and Hoeffler Streets in the Skunk City area of Syracuse. The bioretention area will be located at the corner of Grand Avenue and Delaware Street and will contain a series of rain gardens and bioretention swales which will collect offsite runoff from impervious areas and manage the on-site stormwater as well. The site will have a “parklike” setting with an educational theme. Construction Update: In June, the contractor continued work on the Delaware/Grand Rain Garden and Bioretention Area and this segment of the project is approximately 60% complete. To date the project has installed 7,503 LF of new 18” to 36” interceptor sewer between Velasko Road and West Fayette Street on the west side of Syracuse. In addition, 5,222 LF of new local sewers were installed, ranging in size from 8” to 42” in diameter. The sewer installation is 100% completed and the project overall is approximately 98% complete. The project is anticipated to be completed by July 2012.

Project Description: The Lower Harbor Brook CSO Conveyances and Storage Facility Project is a 4.9 million gallon combined sewer overflow storage facility that will be located on County owned property on State Fair Boulevard between Hiawatha Blvd. and West Genesee Street in the City of Syracuse. The facility will capture and store the overflows from CSOs 003, 004 and 063 for up to the 1-year, 2-hour design storm event. After the storm event subsides, the contents of the storage tank will be pumped to the existing Harbor Brook Interceptor Sewer for conveyance to the Metropolitan Treatment Plant (Metro) for full treatment. The project also includes construction of CSO conveyance pipelines on State Fair Blvd., Hiawatha Blvd., and Erie Blvd. to convey combined sewage from the overflow regulators to the storage tanks during rainfall and snowmelt events. Floatables and grit removal will be included in this facility. Odor control provisions will be incorporated into the facility design and the tank will be completely enclosed. Green Components: To further enhance the sustainability of the facility, the project includes green infrastructure components. The stormwater runoff from the rooftops of the storage tank and control building will be stored within the CSO storage tank and used for a second and third cleaning flush of the tank. This water will ultimately be treated at Metro eliminating the need for this stormwater to be treated on-site. The stormwater storage is designed to capture the 100-year storm (5.2 inches) from the tank and the control building rooftop. Project Update: Conveyances - In June, Construction continued on the conveyance sewers from CSO 003 and 004 that will transmit combined sewage during wet weather events to the new storage tank. The contractor completed backfilling of new 48” conveyance sewer installed between manholes HW-4 and HW-5 in Hiawatha Boulevard; and completed installation support of excavation, piles, and pile cap between manhole HW-1 and Station 4+71. Storage - In June, the contractor completed the installation of the 60” diameter pipeline and backfilled to the surface. Jet grouting activities for the storage tank continued in June as well. The storage facility will store combined sewage from the three CSOs (003, 004 & 063) during storm events, and transmit the sewage after the storm to Metro via the HBIS.

After capturing the runoff, the rain garden allows it to infiltrate as it would in a natural environment. A variety of shrubs and flowering perennials will be planted in the rain garden, and seven new trees will be planted on the lot including attractive, flowering species such as Eastern Redbud and Flowering Dogwood. Because this site is naturally hilly, the new tree plantings and grass groundcover will also serve to prevent erosion and loss of topsoil from the site. This green infrastructure project is designed to capture up to 1� of rainfall at a given time, reducing annual stormwater runoff by approximately 120,000 gallons.

Forman Park gets new features Published: Tuesday, June 05, 2012, 8:51 AM Updated: Tuesday, June 05, 2012, 8:54 AM By Dick Case / Post-Standard columnist Forman, on East Genesee Street in Syracuse, was rededicated as part of the so-called “Connective Corridor,” a partnership of the city of Syracuse, Syracuse University, Onondaga County’s “Save the Rain” program and the state and federal governments. Nancy Cantor, SU’s chancellor, calls the corridor ’’l.5 miles of signature strip of cultural development.” Francesca Merwin, a student in the corridor office, called it a civic engagement, cultural development and scholarship in action. Just now, it involves a major ripping up of University Hill and the East Genesee business district. The public work adds up to a nearly half-a-million-dollar investment in Syracuse. Owen Kerney, deputy city commissioner for planning and sustainability, represented City Hall among partners on the park. Kerney told me last week he’s pleased with the outcome of the corridor as far as Forman Park is concerned. He put the cost at $2.06 million for design and construction for Forman. The focal point of the reconstruction is installation of an ornamental fountain at dead center, where the park pool used to be. The fountain looks old but is new. It has three tiers and slightly resembles a fountain placed in the park in the 1800s. The city bought it from Robinson Iron, a company in Alexander City, Ala., according to Kerney. Mayor Stephanie Miner threw the ceremonial switch at last week’s rededication, he said. He explained the redone park includes some of the old features and some new things, including the concrete benches and landscaping and lighting. One of the items missing from Forman is the old stone bench that once sat at the park’s eastern edge, before SU took it over as an art exhibit space. Kearney said he didn’t know the bench’s fate.

http://blog.syracuse.com/opinion/2012/06/forman_park_gets_new_features.html


There was a bit of a dust-up in 2008 when the university installed a sculpture — a 11-feethigh yellow metal, foam and plastic work — that the Police Benevolent Association, which looks after the nearby police memorial, called “inappropriate.” The piece was replaced. Another “bright and refreshed” element at the park’s west end are the 1908 memorial statues of Lewis Redfield, a pioneer Syracuse journalist; Joshua Forman, a city founder; and a Native American figure. The sculpture group was cleaned and returned to Forman in December 2011. Schwartzwalder feedback Jim Jerome, who suggested the May 27 column about former SU Football Coach Ben Schwartzwalder’s grave, forwarded a nice comment from Felicia Louise Walker, Ben’s granddaughter, who lives in Manhattan: “My youngest son is a Gemini (just like Ben). He was due June 14th (Flag Day) but decided to come early ... June 6 (D-Day)! He’ll be 10. I think it all means something!” Note: D-Day was the World War II invasion that Ben jumped in as a member of the airborne infantry. Fellows follow Information flows in about Dr. Milton A. Fellows, who died during the Civil War, in 1863, and was buried in Pine Ridge Cemetery, near Navarino. The large, metal marker on Milton’s grave was rediscovered a while back by Jerry Orton and his wife, Lorraine. Jerry’s a Civil War buff, complete with reenactor’s uniform. Based on documents supplied mostly by Pam Priest, archivist at the Onondaga Historical Association, we believe Milton was from that part of Onondaga County (so is Pam) and was placed in a lot when he died of “camp fever” while serving as an Army surgeon. Pam emailed a copy of the Pine Ridge burials, which lists some 26 with the last name of Fellows. That includes the physician’s mother, Sarah, and father, Hiram. Milton’s burial note included “killed in Civil War.” The list also includes a passel of Cases, likely the branch of my family who lived on Case Hill, a settlement south of U.S. Route 20. Pine Ridge was the burial place for Joshua Chaffee (1886), namesake for the hamlet of Joshua, which is on Route 20, too. I checked with Mike Horigan, the expert on the Civil War military at Elmira, where Milton Fellows died. Mike thinks it’s likely that the surgeon was sent to Elmira, which had a large Union encampment in the war, on his way home to Onondaga County. The infamous Elmira Confederate prison camp ran between July 1864 and July 1865. Sue Greenhagen, of Eaton, an avid Civil War researcher, found Milton Fellows in an 1860 census, listed as a physician in the Town of Onondaga, where Navarino is located.

Forum will set the agenda for water cleanup Read more: Local, News, Water Issue, Onondaga Lake, Water Quality, Watershed, Public Forum, Genessee Grande, Onondaga Lake Partnership

The group that oversees the water quality of Onondaga Lake is reaching beyond the lakeshore to improve the whole watershed--the area that drains into the lake. The Onondaga Lake Partnership hosts a public forum Monday evening at the Genesee Grande (east Genesee Street by Route 81) to get public input on shaping the future of the watershed. Brandi Lee Schafran, with the Onondaga Lake Partnership, says people who come can suggest any topics aimed at improving water quality in streams, groundwater or other sources that end up flowing into the lake itself, over hundreds of square miles. The public forum is Monday 5 - 8:30, she also promises free food for participants. Check the partners website or call 315 472-2150 for more information.

Discuss the future of Onondaga Lake's watershed at Monday night's public forum: Neighbors North Today Published: Monday, June 18, 2012, 2:04 PM

Updated: Monday, June 18, 2012, 2:14 PM

By The Post-Standard

Tonight, the Onondaga Lake Partnership is hosting its second public forum at the Genesee Grande Hotel in Syracuse from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to discuss initiatives to shape the future of the watershed. In November 2011, about 150 people attended a forum at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo to learn more about lake cleanup. Last month, government leaders formally announced plans to dredge contaminated soil from the bottom of Onondaga Lake starting in midsummer. The $451 million operation will remove almost 2 million cubic yards of sediment laced with mercury and other pollutants. The dredges will suck the material from the lake 24 hours a day, except during winter months, for the next four years.

Busy one-way street on University Hill to become two-way street Published: 6/25 5:02 pm

Updated: 6/25 6:02 pm

Syracuse (WSYR-Tv) -- A busy road on the Syracuse University hill is becoming a two-way street. Construction crews have been working on University Avenue for months. The roadway runs from Waverly Avenue all the way down to Erie Boulevard. It's one part of the City's Connective Corridor plan, which aims to connect the SU Hill with Downtown. Like many streets on the hill, University Avenue has been one-way for years. Many drivers we spoke with think the new traffic pattern will make it easier to get around. "It's always been confusing with all the one ways. I think changing it will only be confusing to the people who are already here, but they will learn quickly with good signage," said Keith Costello.

one since the intersection sees heavy foot traffic.

Monday, crews were putting the finishing touches on a new crosswalk at the corner of University Avenue and Marshall Street. The crosswalk will be highly visible and more durable than the old

Other upgrades include new curbs, lighting, bike racks and benches near the bus stops. You will also see examples of green infrastructure along the road. Some parts of the sidewalk are designed to be porous in order to catch storm water, part of the county's Save the Rain program. On the western side of the road, there is space to park. And on the other side of the road, a landscaped barrier to divide traffic and the new two-way bike lane. "I think it's a good idea. Traffic gets pretty crazy here in the spring and the fall, so to have the bike lane gives you that extra security," said Mary Capparuccini, who commutes to campus on her bike. The $5.5-million dollar project was a joint effort between the city, Onondaga County and Syracuse University. It was paid for with tax dollars and grants. University Avenue will become two ways in two weeks, the bike lane will also open in mid-July. Construction crews are expected to be all cleaned up by the end of July.

US Postal Services Announces Green Roof Initiative on Colvin-Elmwood Post Office Published on June 30, 2012 at 8:35 AM By Gary Thomas The U.S. Postal Service has reported that the Colvin-Elmwood Post Office will get an 11,300-square-foot green roof, which will be constructed at no cost through the ‘Save the Rain’ initiative, a collaborative effort of Onondaga County, New York. The Colvin-Elmwood Post Office's roof was reckoned structurally strong to support the extra weight of the vegetation, soil, and other prerequisites of a green roof. The green roof will comprise a new membrane, drainage sheet layers, mat, indigenous vegetation, separation fabric, and a wind blanket. The green roof blueprint is in line with the Postal Service's commitment to develop eco-friendly facilities and spaces wherever possible. The green roof also deals with practical issues. The roof's estimated operating life is as high as 50 years which is double the period than that of the existing roof. The roof will also lower pollutant content in rainstorm water runoff collected in Syracuse's municipal water system. The Colvin-Elmwood green roof comes under the Postal Service’s greener facilities strategy, which covers the use of renewable materials, ecofriendly building components, low volatile organic compound components, solar photovoltaic systems, energy-efficient HVAC and lighting, and low-water use fixtures. Chief Sustainability Officer, Thomas G. Day informed that the Postal Service is happy to partner with Onondaga County for the construction of its second green roof, which will facilitate the organization in saving energy and water in the Syracuse metropolitan region. With over 11,000 square feet of area, the Colvin-Elmwood green roof will also become one of the largest in the New York region. The green roof will help the Postal Service to fulfill its objectives of achieving a 30% reduction in energy consumption by 2015 and a 20% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020.

News: Downtown Syracuse at Heart of More Than $1.4B in Center City Capital Investments Smart Growth America VP: Syracuse Well-Positioned in Competitive Environment Downtown Syracuse is at the center of more than $1.4 billion in capital investments being made throughout Syracuse announced the Downtown Committee of Syracuse at its annual meeting on Thursday. Keynote speaker, Bill Fulton — a native of nearby Auburn, NY and now vice president for policy and programs at Smart Growth America, shared how cities are in competition for young talent. He described Syracuse as wellpositioned in this competitive environment due to the high concentration of colleges and universities here and the investment taking place in the urban core. He also commented on Syracuse University’s important role as a catalyst for both “place-making” and the creation of an innovation economy that is attractive to a new generation of your entrepreneurs. He also commended the university for making “connnections” to connect the area’s unique assets — through physical infrastructure, transportation, and amenities to make the city more walkable and bikeable — as well as civic engagement. Of the $1.4 billion being invested into capital projects throughout Syracuse, $265 million is being invested in downtown Syracuse. Other development highlights: • Over $60 million was recently invested or is currently being invested into the heart of downtown. • Infrastructure projects in downtown Syracuse (including Onondaga County’ Save the Rain initiative and the Connective Corridor) total over $124 million. • Hospitality & entertainment projects total $45 million. • Residential development projects planned or underway account for over $77 million of downtown’s development totals. • 570 new residential units will be added from these projects. For a list of those investments, click here.

Postal Service Plants Second Green Roof Sows New Seeds of Sustainability SYRACUSE, N.Y., June 28, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The U.S. Postal Service today celebrated another example of environmental leadership as local officials announced a green roof atop the ColvinElmwood Post Office. The 11,300 square foot green roof will be built at no cost to the Postal Service through an innovative sustainability partnership with Onondaga County, NY. (Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120628/DC32999) "The Postal Service continues to lead the way when it comes to making a positive impact on the environment," said Chief Sustainability Officer, Thomas G. Day. "We're pleased to be collaborating with the good people of Onondaga County on our second green roof, which will help the Postal Service conserve water and energy in the Syracuse metropolitan area." Working cooperatively with Onondaga County's Save the Rain initiative, the Colvin-Elmwood Post Office's roof was deemed structurally sound to support the additional weight of the soil, vegetation and other requirements of a green roof. The green roof will consist of a new membrane, layers of drainage sheet, mat, separation fabric, indigenous vegetation and a wind blanket. The green roof plan fits perfectly into the Postal Service's commitment to create sustainable spaces and facilities wherever possible. The green roof also addresses practical concerns. The roof's expected lifespan is up to 50 years, twice as long as the roof it will replace. It also will reduce the amount of contaminants in storm water runoff flowing into Syracuse's municipal water system. "At more than 11,000 square feet, the Colvin-Elmwood green roof will be one of the largest in New York," said Day. "The ColvinElmwood green roof will help us meet our goals to reduce energy usage 30 percent by 2015 and greenhouse gas emissions 20 percent by 2020." The Colvin-Elmwood green roof is part of the Postal Service's greener facilities strategy, which includes the use of environmentally friendly building components, renewable materials, energy-efficient lighting and HVAC, low volatile organic compound parts, low-water use fixtures and solar photovoltaic systems. In the last 12 months, the Postal Service also has expanded its recycling program in Central New York to include mixed paper and cardboard, resulting in nearly 1,055 tons of materials recycled in the past year. With more than 700 postal locations, including Post Office locations in Syracuse and Central New York, and with a recycling rate of 95 percent, District Manager, Edward F. Phelan, Jr., noted the Albany district is one of the Postal Service's first Zero Waste districts. "The employees of the Albany district have contributed to the lowest waste costs in the country and the fewest tons of material sent to landfills," said Phelan. "We take environmental stewardship very seriously and every office in the Albany district, which serves more than 3.5 million customers, participates in our recycling program, the success of which rates our district tops in the nation." In its 2011 Annual Sustainability Report the Postal Service announced a 7.4 percent decrease in greenhouse gas emissions from a fiscal year 2008 baseline. The reduction of almost 985,000 metric tons of CO2 is equal to removing nearly 200,000 passenger vehicles from the road for a year. Source: PR Newswire (http://s.tt/1gf6g)

Local post office goes green with new roof By: Web Staff

ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- The Colvin-Elmwood Post Office in Syracuse is becoming more environmentally friendly with a "green" roof. The 11,000 square foot roof will be built through the Save The Rain Initiative to help reduce pollution in local lakes and creeks. The green roof will capture storm water and will reduce the amount of contaminants produced by storm water runoff that flow into Syracuse's water system. The U.S. Postal Service is working together with Onondaga County to make this project possible, with no cost to the postal service. "We choose it because Onondaga County offered us the opportunity to work with them. They're actually providing the funding to do it. We're providing the opportunity with our post office. It's a great collaboration between the federal and local government," said Thomas day, Chief Sustainability Officer. Day says this is the second green roof to be built at a post office in the nation and both are in New York State.
