Project Description

Metropolitan Council Environmental Services is making improvements to aging and deteriorating regional sanitary sewer facilities that serve homes, businesses and parks and recreation facilities in the Payne Phalen neighborhood of Saint Paul. There are no direct costs or special assessments to residents for this work, which is scheduled to take place from November 2016 to November 2017.

The project will take place in two stages, and rehabilitate approximately 8,200 feet of regional sanitary sewer pipe by installing a liner inside the existing sewer – a process called Cured In Place Pipe. Sewer manholes will be repaired or replaced as necessary along the way. Excavations will be needed at several manholes to install the new sewer liner and rehabilitate manholes.
