Pond Infrastructure Replacement to Impact Hawkins Hall

03:47pm EDT, 14 Apr 2014

PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (April 8, 2014) — SUNY Plattsburgh’s Hawkins Pond is about to receive a facelift — and become more environmentally friendly.

Beginning May 19 and concluding in the fall of 2015, the famous pond that has been the backdrop for many wedding and prom photos will be part of a $3.6 million construction project, paid for by the SUNY Construction Fund. The project will replace hot water, storm and sewer lines around Hawkins Hall. Plattsburgh-based Luck Brothers Inc. will be the general contractor.

Because of the construction, access to Hawkins, Hudson and Ward halls will be somewhat restricted through the summer and potentially into the fall. Fencing will circle Hawkins Hall and the pond area, and half of the Hawkins Hall parking lot will be used as a staging area for maintenance efforts.
