AECOM Stream Work to Begin Early July

Written By Editor on 6/5/14 | 6/5/14


Although the Schoharie County Board of Supervisors voted to move forward on the AECom stream bank remediation project at the May county board meeting, Middleburgh Town Supervisor Jim Buzon told residents of Middleburgh that work is not expected to begin on the streams until early July.

Mr. Buzon, who made the comments toward the end of Thursday night's annual joint town and village board meeting, indicated that the project's start date had been pushed back because the contracted work crews were reassigned to different jobs while the county board deferred action for two months. 

The project has been the source of considerable contention within the county since it was revealed that AECom had gone approximately $2.6 million over budgeted costs in late March, leading the county board to request the NY State Comptroller's Office review the original contract's alleged unauthorized alterations. 

Four local streams are slated to be rehabilitated once work begins, including sites at Dave Brown Mountain; Line Creek; Little Schoharie, and Platterkill. Mr. Buzon said the project most likely wont be completed until late October.
