District 5

Capital Program & Projects

District 5 includes the Hennepin County cities of Bloomington, Edina, Hopkins, Richfield, and the Fort Snelling Unorganized Territory (including MSP International Airport).

Hopkins System Improvements: Project 8041

The Program provides for the replacement of a 5-mile-long force main, known as the Hopkins force main, and lift station L27 located in the city of Hopkins. The force main is a single 24 to 30-inch interceptor pipe that begins in Hopkins at the intersection of Blake Rd and Lake St and passes through St. Louis Park and Minneapolis where it discharges to the 1-MN-330 gravity interceptor sewer. The system serves the cities of Hopkins, St. Louis Park, and Minneapolis. The new force main system is constructed as a dual 18 to 24-inch pipe system. The new 6.3 mgd lift station is constructed 700-feet to the west of the existing lift station.

Bloomington System Improvements: Project 8084

Construct a 3.8 Million Gallon Per Day (MGD) lift station, 1600 feet of 18 to 42-inch gravity sewer, 635 feet of 16-inch force main, and decommission an existing lift station.


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