Hopkins System Improvements: Program 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.

This Program provides funding to address capital improvements for the interceptors that serve Minneapolis and the surrounding areas.

Minneapolis Interceptor System Rehabilitation, Phase 2: Program 8092

This program includes facility planning and new projects to address aging infrastructure within or contributary to the City of Minneapolis. Potential projects include the Interceptor 1-MN-340 Capacity Relief Study and Interceptor 1-MN-320 Replacement.

Northwest Area Interceptor Improvements: Program 8096

The interceptor systems in Plymouth, Maple Grove, Brooklyn Center, New Hope, Golden Valley, St Louis Park, Medina, and other northwest area communities need rehabilitation and/or replacement as well as expansion to serve growth.
