The New York City Depts. of Environmental Protection and Parks & Recreation plan to daylight Tibbetts Brook in the Bronx. A mile-long section of tunnel that has been conveying the water of Tibbetts Brook into the city sewer system since 1912 will be demolished and the brook rerouted above ground. The removal of the brook water from the sewer system will end up reducing sewer overflow into the Harlem River by 25%, as well as reduce the volume of fresh water that is treated unnecessarily. The daylighted section will be turned into a new greenway before being sent back underground for a half mile in a new dedicated pipe to the Harlem River. The project will also include improvements to the pond in Van Cortlandt Park and construction of new pedestrian and bike trails in an underused park section that will connect to the new greenway on a former railroad right-of-way. The project is valued at $130 million. New York City Dept. of Environmental Protection, 5917 Junction Blvd., Flushing, 11373. DR#22-00528303.
