Poop in the water at police academy

From the NY Post:

This academy is not going to win any awards.

The NYPD’s brand-new, $750 million supposedly state-of-the-art Police Academy in Queens now has a water contamination problem —-just months after the building’s high-tech gym floor buckled and needed to be replaced.

Thirsty cops and recruits were handed bottled water on Friday, after officials deemed the building’s water unsafe to sip on, according to documents obtained by The Post.

NYPD Chief Surgeon Dr. Eli Kleinman warned that the water shouldn’t be used for washing dishes or showering either, until a further investigation.

Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins called the situation “troubling” — and said he’d received numerous calls from concerned cops.

“They seemed to think there’s E. coli in the water,” he told The Post.

what a boondoggle.

what else can this be?

what was on that lot before the building started anyway?

The whole area is a swamp.

So it begs the question. Is this a problem isolated to the building itself or an area supply problem?

Wait until the building starts to settle over the next 10 years. High maintenance baby!

It has got to be due to the water pipe delivery system. Since the area is a swamp the pipes may have been breached by any settling or sinking in the structure. If shit is in the water table, though not supplying drinking water, that could now make its way into the water delivery system. Isn't the New York Times building also sinking? What about the postal facility ? Is their drinking water safe? Is Marilyn Bitterman, district manager of CB7 boiling her water or drinking bottled water now? She lives in Mitchel Gardens right across from College Point Corporate Park.

Poop in the water gives it character.

Tastes like success!

That is your government officials looking out for you. You don't even have to bend over anymore, you get to chug a full glass of excrement.

This was a bad idea from the start. The location's ridiculous and the infrastructure was never meant to support such a large facility. The traffic in that area is, at times, a nightmare. The roads are like roller coasters. AND the College Point Garbage Transfer Station will exacerbate the existing traffic and other concerns. Also, getting to the facility from Main Street will not be easy. Thoughts?

The NYPD will probably run it's own shuttle bus from Willets Point to the Academy.

Something else the Wilpon's will try to make a buck from.

What do you expect from a town with the name Flushinh?

Much of that area was filled in with ash for Flushing Airport.Also an old Sanitation worker told me about 20 years ago he dumped lots of ash where the USPS facility is and yes it was sinking.
The USPS got the property after the land they bought on Newtown Creek where Phelp's Dodge was found to be contaminated and they never built a facility there.
I heard that former Congressman Rosenthal owned the building and sold it or rented it to the USPS. I think before that Bell Telephone was there.
