Project Description

Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES), operator of the metro-area wastewater collection and treatment system, made improvements to aging and deteriorating regional sanitary sewer facilities that serve homes and businesses near MSP International Airport in the cities of Richfield and Minneapolis.

The word included rehabilitating maintenance holes and inserting a liner into an existing sanitary sewer pipe to form a new pipe, a process called Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP). One of the sites near the intersection of Diagonal Blvd. and Cedar Ave. required open excavation to install the new pipe. The project was completed in three stages between March and December 2017 (see map below). Restoration work continued through summer of 2018.
