Blue Lake System Improvements: Program 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, 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).
St. Bonifacius LS/FM Rehabilitation: Program 8082
This project consists of a new lift station (L24) and new dual forcemains to be constructed in 2020.
Interceptor Rehabilitation Program: Program 8090
This project includes the ongoing inspection of metropolitan interceptors, lift stations, forcemains, siphons and meter stations along with rehabilitation of problem areas as needed.
In addition to the major projects, there will be interceptor rehabilitation, lift stations, and meter improvement projects located in the district.
