Project Description

Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (ES), operator of the metro area wastewater collection and treatment system, is evaluating the rehabilitation of the aging and deteriorating sanitary sewer interceptor located between Fenway Avenue and Highway 61 from Headwaters Parkway to 180th Street North.

This infrastructure is a critical component of sanitary sewer service in Forest Lake, taking wastewater from local residents and businesses and sending it to the regional sewer that delivers it to the Metropolitan Wastewater Treatment Plant in Saint Paul. The improvements will repair or replace the aging infrastructure and enhance the system’s efficiency, reliability, and capacity
