North Area Interceptor Rehabilitation: Project 8086
The interceptor systems in Blaine, Brooklyn Park, Champlin, Circle Pines, Coon Rapids, Forest Lake, Fridley, Hugo, Lexington, Lino Lakes, Maple Grove, Moundsview, Spring Lake Park, and other north area communities need rehabilitation and/or replacement. The project will rehabilitate existing interceptor facilities, including gravity sewers, forcemains, lift stations and meter stations.
Regional Plant Improvements: Project 8078
The project originally consisted of electrical improvements to mitigate arc flash potential and for the replacement of electrical equipment as needed at the regional plants. It was expanded to include improvements at the St. Croix Valley, Eagles Point, Empire, Hastings, and Blue Lake Plants. The Eagles Point Plant project includes replacement of the existing membrane diffusers with ceramic diffusers. The Blue Lake project includes improvements to optimize digester gas production and utilization, as well as improvements to the plant’s electrical system. The project includes a plant-wide Wi-Fi network at each of the regional wastewater treatment plants as well as miscellaneous improvements at the Hastings Plant, Empire Plant, and East Bethel Water Reclamation Plant.
In addition to the major projects, there will be interceptor rehabilitation, lift stations, and meter improvement projects located in the district.
