Broome Security Guards Empty BAE Systems Site 24/7

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Nearly two years after the flood wrecked a Westover building, Broome County security division officers continue to keep an eye on the abandoned property.

The sprawling building at 600 Main Street had been home to BAE Systems. But millions of gallons of water spilled into the structure, forcing the company to move its local operations to Endicott.

The federal government is expected to cover the cost of demolishing the huge structure but local officials say it’s unclear exactly when the work will get underway.

Broome County government security employees maintain a presence at the site and do regular checks in an effort to keep intruders from entering the facility.

Town of Union planning director Paul Nelson says efforts continue to determine possible future uses for the site.

Nelson notes that although the building sustained extensive damage in the last flood, a levee system had provided protection from most previous storm events.
