MCES Project 802827

Understandably, the spread of COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus, has raised questions about the status of Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) plant and interceptor construction projects. Please note the following:

  • Construction on wastewater treatment plants and sewer interceptors will continue. The contractors are following working environment protocols (asking employees to stay home if they are sick, social distancing, etc.) as outlined by public health agencies.

  • Some project staff are working remotely while others remain on-site to ensure proper oversight of the project. Staff will stay connected through emails, conference calls, and web-based meetings to manage construction activities.

Contact information

For information regarding construction, please call the construction hotline or send an email to the contact information listed on the bottom of that project’s website.

While the response to COVID-19 continues to evolve, we will continue to monitor and review construction activities and conditions through our field inspectors and their on-site reporting. We will be using electronic communication methods to share information, should there be additional updates. Subscribe to updates by text or email.

Project Description

Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES), operator of the metro-area wastewater collection and treatment system, is making utility and street improvements in the City of Mound from 2016 through 2018. The improvements include:

  • Lift station reconstruction. A new lift station (L39) will be relocated and constructed at the southeast corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Bradford Lane.  The older lift station L39 (north side of Wilshire Boulevard at Bradford Lane) and the lift station L40 on the west end of Manchester Road will be abandoned.
  • Sewer pipe reconstruction. Regional sanitary sewer pipe will be reconstructed along a portion of Wilshire Boulevard and other local streets. Wilshire Boulevard between Maywood Road and Bradford Lane will be closed in 2017 during construction. Access to this part of Mound will be maintained from the east.
