Blue Lake Solids Processing: Project 8097

This project provides improvements to the solids thickening and drying processes at the plant. It also provides for the renewal of equipment that is nearing the end of its useful life and capacity.

Blue Lake System Improvements: Project 8028

This project provides improvements to meet the long-term conveyance capacity, reliability, and rehabilitation/replacement needs of the Blue Lake Interceptor System. This system includes gravity sewers, 29 lift stations, and single forcemains from each lift station. Where cost effective, such as in the Victoria area, some lift stations are being replaced by deep gravity sewers using tunnel construction methods. In some cases, small lift stations will be consolidated. The remaining lift stations will be rehabilitated and/or replaced as necessary. Single forcemains will be upgraded to dual forcemains. Gravity sewers will be rehabilitated as necessary. River crossings (Chaska-Shakopee and Eden Prairie-Shakopee) will be inspected and rehabilitated as necessary. The five major project areas are Victoria, Excelsior, Mound, and Wayzata, and Gravity Sewers (Chanhassen, Eden Prairie, Minnetonka, Prior Lake, and Shakopee).

Hopkins System Improvements: Project 8041

This project consists of the replacement of the existing 40-year-old forcemain and lift station to provide long term, reliable service to the City of Hopkins and St. Louis Park.

St. Bonifacius LS/FM Rehabilitation: Project 8082

This project consists of a new lift station and new dual forcemains.

In addition to the major projects, there will be interceptor rehabilitation, lift stations, and meter improvement projects located in the district.
