Academic Core Building Water Infiltration Update
Groundwater infiltration into the Academic Core Building is confined to an isolated section of the sub-basement. Based on the data in the Tectonic report, PCE found in the groundwater pose no risk to students, faculty and staff of the college, nor to the drinking water supply, which comes from New York City's upstate water supply systems.
We continue to work with DASNY and the University Office for Facilities Planning, Construction, and Management to solve the groundwater infiltration problem. DASNY has retained the URS Corporation-New York (URS) to recommend and develop a solution to the groundwater infiltration problem in the Academic Core Building. As new information becomes available we will share it with you.
