Videos explore what to expect during sewer construction

Date: Wednesday, January 8, 2020

In cities across the region, Metropolitan Council Environmental Services is repairing or replacing aging sewer pipes and upgrading treatment plants.

We’re producing three short videos so you know what to expect during and after sewer construction. The first one — “What’s That Smell?” — is a humorous look at what you might experience near a construction site. Two more videos will be completed by spring 2020.

This year we will spend an estimated $154 million on wastewater capital projects. These projects preserve the value and performance of an estimated $7 billion in infrastructure, meet the capacity needs of a growing population, and improve the quality of our service.
