Project Description

Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES), operator of the metro-area wastewater collection and treatment system, has made improvements to aging and deteriorating regional sanitary sewer facilities that serve homes and businesses in the city of Brooklyn Park. Construction is complete on both sites (Mississippi Lane and Riverview Lane). Crews will return in spring 2022 to evaluate restored sod conditions and determine replacement.

What to Expect

Construction is complete and there are no anticipated impacts to residents at this time.

MCES has developed three short videos to help explain why projects like this are necessary, what smells you may experience during the project, and how we will return the project sites to how they were before or better during the restoration phase.

“This Old Pipe”

The sewer pipes right under our feet are an important part of our wastewater infrastructure, but they are getting old and need repair. MCES has a strategic plan to fix aging sewer pipes to keep the region’s wastewater flowing and neighborhoods safe.

“What’s That Smell?”

As wastewater crews fix our pipes from the inside, you might smell - well, poop. Another smell you might notice is a little bit like glue. These smells are normal, and they can escape during repair. Our crews will monitor odors to meet air quality standards and we’ll do our best to reduce them during construction.

“Operation: Restoration”

MCES is committed to being a good neighbor and restoring our sewer construction sites back to how they were before, or better. We may need to remove or relocate trees and shrubs or wait for the right season to complete work like planting grass, but our on-site staff will be there to help!
