past projects

TOWN OF PRINCETOWN- NORMANSKILL CREEK SLOPE STABILIZATION

JME performed field inspections and a site survey of the Normanskill Creek adjacent to the Town's wellfield following Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee to document the damages sustained.  A natural stream design approach was taken for the final plans, which included 800 linear feet of rip rap, j-hook rock veins and live whip plantings to restore and stabilize the creek bank and to mitigate erosion from future high flow events that were jeopardizing the Town's municipal well and a private commercial well.  We performed construction inspection of the project to ensure that the work, especially the rock veins, were installed properly.  Project funding sources included grants from FEMA, NRCS and ESD.

CITY OF AMSTERDAM- PHASE 2 SEWER SEPARATION PROJECT

JME performed field inspections and site surveys of seven (7) locations where storm sewers were connected to the sanitary sewer system. Plans and specifications were developed to remove these connections and to line several manholes that had major infiltration.  The Cleveland Avenue pump station was also upgraded to handle additional flow and provide more reliable operation. We performed periodic construction inspections of sites to ensure that the work was properly completed.

VILLAGE OF CANAJOHARIE- DOWNTOWN STORM DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS

JME performed field inspections and site surveys of four locations where roof leaders were connected to the sanitary sewer in downtown Canajoharie.  Plans and specifications were developed to remove these connections and to connect them to new storm sewers. We prepared numerous easements to install the new pipes behind buildings.  We performed periodic construction inspections of the sites to ensure that the work was properly completed.  This project was funded though a CDBG grant. 

VILLAGE OF FORT JOHNSON- KAYDEROSSERAS CREEK STABILIZATION

After Hurricane Irene went through our region, banks along the Kayderosseras Creek in the Village of Fort Johnson were severely eroded.  This erosion was compromising two private properties along the banks of the creek, which put buildings and other structures at risk.  Through a grant from USDA EWP, the Village sponsored stabilization measures for approximately 200 feet of stream bank.

JMEPC put together a design consisting of rip rap, stream barbs and live plantings to stabilize the stream, and worked closely with the Village and NRCS for approval of this design and to produce the most cost effective project that would protect these homes for years to come.  Our work also included permitting, budget analysis, grant administration, construction administration and inspection. 

CITY OF AMSTERDAM- SEWER SEPARATION PROJECT

JME performed field inspections and site surveys of eight locations where storm sewers were connected to the sanitary sewer system. Plans and specifications were developed to remove these connections.  We performed periodic construction inspections of the site to insure the work was done correctly.

VILLAGE OF SCOTIA- BROAD STREET RECONSTRUCTION

JME completed design and provided inspection services for the Broad Street reconstruction project, which included complete removal of road base and asphalt and a new storm sewer system.

TOWN OF CLIFTON PARK- EAST SIDE DRIVE STORM SEWER

JME completed design, bid and construction phase services for a new stormwater system on East Side Drive in the Town of Clifton Park.  The work included installation of 1,200 linear feet of corrugated HDPE stormwater piping, catch basins, drainage ditches, and outfall.  Construction phase services included full-time inspection.

TOWN OF CLIFTON PARK- ENGLEMORE ROAD CULVERT REPLACEMENT

JME completed design, bid and construction phase services for slip-lining of a failed 80-foot section of 6-foot diameter corrugated metal pipe with a smooth interior/exterior thick-walled 5-foot diameter HDPE pipe.  The annular space between the deteriorated pipe and new pipe was grouted.

CITY OF AMSTERDAM- NORTHAMPTON DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS

JME completed design, bid and construction phase services for drainage improvements to an existing 3-foot by 5-foot concrete box culvert that ran under streets, garages, and near houses.  It was lined with 2,800 linear feet of twin 30-inch diameter HDPE pipes through a trenchless directed bore method, slip lining and grouting of annular spaces.  Catch basins were also replaced.

TOWN OF ROTTERDAM- HOULTON AVENUE RECONSTRUCTION

JME completed design and inspection services for the Houlton Avenue reconstruction project, which included complete removal of road base and asphalt and a new storm sewer system.

TOWN OF CLIFTON PARK- MISS SHEN SOFTBALL DRAINAGE

JME designed and inspected a drainage improvement project at the Miss Shen Girls Softball League located at Clifton Common Park in the Town of Clifton Park.  We worked with the Town and the Miss Shen Softball League to correct numerous drainage problems. The project included installation of 3,000 linear feet of 4 inch perforated underdrain pipe, 1,700 linear feet of 12 inch perforated underdrain pipe, 13 precast concrete catch basins, 3 precast concrete manholes, and 8 precast concrete dry wells.

VILLAGE OF SCOTIA - MOHAWK RIVER STABILIZATION PROJECT

JME performed a stabilization study and construction project to address the severe on-going erosion conditions along the Village of Scotia's 2,000 linear feet of riverfront. We worked with the Village to obtain grants totaling $1.5 million from the FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program and the New York State Waterfront Revitalization Grant Program. The project included installation of "hard armoring", a product that allows for vegetation growth, and rip-rap to protect the riverbank.

In addition, JME is working on the next phase of the project which includes improvements to the park including a new public dock, sidewalks, lighting and landscaping.
