Protecting public health and the environment

The Rogers Facility was constructed in 1960 and acquired by the Metropolitan Council’s Environmental Services in 2019.

The facility provides primary oxidation and secondary ultraviolet treatment to wastewater before discharging the resulting clean water to the Crow River. Solids removed from the wastewater are stored in a sludge pond that is dredged as needed, usually every 15 to 20 years.

The Rogers Facility has an excellent environmental record and regularly earns state and national awards for operational excellence. It has earned a National Association of Clean Water Agencies Platinum Peak Performance Award for perfect clean water discharge permit compliance across multiple consecutive years.
