SUNY Plattsburgh pond will receive makeover

Posted: Updated:

The SUNY Plattsburgh pond is getting a makeover.

The pond will get a new lining and a waterfall to keep it filled year-round. In addition to above-ground upgrades, the hot water, storm and sewer pipes will be replaced. The $3.6 million project is being paid for by the SUNY Construction Fund.

Contractors working on the new pond say access to Hawkins, Hudson, and Ward halls will be affected by the construction. Foot traffic and parking will also be impacted.

"It's going to be a little bit disruptive. We're going to make sure people can get in and out of the buildings, get into Hawkins Hall safely and efficiently. Make sure everything's assigned and properly taken care of," said Kevin Roberts, SUNY Plattsburgh director of facilities. 

Work on the new pond will begin this May. It's expected to be completed by fall of 2015.
