Engineering complete for gas building upgrades

PENN YAN—The historic stone building along the Keuka Outlet will see considerable work before the planned outlet remediation begins. The New York State Electric and Gas Corporation (NYSEG) has completed their engineering plans to ensure the former Penn Yan Water Street manufactured gas plant does not collapse during the dredging work to remove contamination from the site. NYSEG made the decision to conduct the building repairs after public concern over initial plans to demolish the historic building.
Finger Lakes Economic Development Center (FLEDC) Chief Executive Officer Steve Griffin said NYSEG has finished their engineering plans for stabilize building during remediation, with the next step to seek approval for the building plans. Griffin said assuming they get approval, NYSEG will conduct a bidding process to find a contractor to do the work. He said once a contractor is selected, work will begin on the building starting in the spring of next year. Griffin said the dredging work will begin not long after that, with a set project completion date for late summer or early fall of next year.
Griffin said by the time NYSEG gets through all the design submissions and chooses a contractor, it will probably be too late to begin the work, which will have to wait until next year. He said NYSEG is “much farther along than they were before” with the project, adding they do not have a sound idea on the price of the work to be done. Griffin said the building work will include roof repair and the repair of exterior bricks, with a lot of the fixes and repairs meant to be more permanent in nature to make the structure more sound.
Griffin said the goal for right now is to fix the building up so it will not fall over, adding he tells them there is always interest in that building. He said the FLEDC’s belief is they will work with NYSEG and come up with a clear use for the building in the future once the work is completed.
