Project Description

Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES), operator of the metro-area wastewater collection and treatment system, is improving facilities at the Metro Plant with the addition of a new Services Building using the design-build delivery method.

It will include a remodeled Analytical Laboratory, new office space, additional laboratory space, a field services facility, and access to the Metro Plant tunnel system.

The project will also add a second staffed entrance to the Metro Plant with a new guard station and parking lot. Construction on this project is anticipated to begin in late 2022 and will take approximately two years to complete.

What to Expect

While we do our best to minimize impacts during construction, some temporary inconveniences may occur as the work takes place, including increased construction traffic to the Metro Plant and construction noise.
