SUNY Plattsburgh Hawkins Hall Pond Renovation

Hawkins Hall Pond is a land­mark in Plattsburgh, serving as the photo setting for many community/school events. This SUCF project replaced the aging infra­structure of high temperature hot water lines, added water lines with additional hydrants, replaced storm water and sanitary sewer lines, and  seperated the sanitary sewer from the storm sewer. The project also in­cluded landscape improvements around Hawkins Hall—a distinct building that is on National Register of Historic Places—and the reconstruction of the adjacent Hawkins Hall Pond. The reconstructed pond has a new liner, better filtering with lower maintenance, a new focal waterfall, and stone that lines the entire circumference. The stone used is a variety of native granite and sandstone from local quarries that is arranged to act as a microcosm that represents the natural stone of the Plattsburgh region. The wetland plantings at the pond and land­scape are a teaching tool for the environmental science program.
