Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) is making improvements to Lift Station 32, located at the corner of Mississippi Lane and Brookdale Drive in Brooklyn Park. Updates are being made to station structures and the odor control system. These updates will better ensure a safe work environment for MCES employees and may decrease noticeable odors emitted from the station. Lift station rehabilitation will begin January 2018 and is scheduled to be complete in April 2019.
Description of Work
The primary objective of the project is to replace the station’s odor control system. The project includes:
- Setting up a temporary odor control system to remove or deactivate the current odor control system and install a new one
- Building a new, larger structure around the new odor control system. This includes a roof which will prevent snow and ice build-up
- Completing concrete repair to the primary lift station building
- Adding a small section of asphalt near the new odor control structure
The project will take place on MCES property where Lift Station 32 is currently located. There are no anticipated impacts to nearby roads, local traffic, neighboring properties, or the environment. During parts of the project, neighbors may notice an increase in trucks and project equipment at the Lift Station, increased odor, and construction noise. From the river the lift station will look slightly different as the new odor control structure will be larger.
