Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES), operator of the metro-area wastewater collection and treatment system, is making improvements to wastewater infrastructure in Waconia. A 1.7-mile-long segment of Interceptor 7508, which was originally constructed in 1975, is being replaced due to age and to provide future capacity.
This is one of the remaining sections of forcemain to be replaced as part of a program for the interceptor and lift station that serve the City of Waconia, Laketown Township, and the City of Victoria. The new segment will be constructed as a 20-inch forcemain to parallel the existing 16-inch forcemain.
Work has been planned with the City of Waconia and with Carver County, both of which have concurrent utility and park improvement projects. The project is in Lake Waconia Regional Park and Highway 5 right-of-way in the City of Waconia and in Laketown Township.
