On October 23, 2018, the Rogers City Council adopted a resolution requesting that Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) acquire its wastewater treatment plant through an acquisition agreement. Acquisition of the Rogers Wastewater Treatment Plant was identified in the 2040 Water Resources Policy Plan and was included in 2016 in the City of Rogers’ approved 2030 Comprehensive Plan Amendment.
On July 1, 2019, MCES acquired the Rogers Wastewater Treatment Facility and began joint operations with the City of Rogers. In 2020, MCES will be solely in charge of the facility and operate it until construction of a new regional wastewater plant on a site about two miles west of the existing treatment plant. MCES proposes to construct the new Crow River Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant by 2030; the plant would serve Rogers and portions of Dayton and Corcoran.
Since the acquisition of the facility on July 1, 2019, MCES has been working a series of small changes to the facility to bring it in line with other MCES facilities. The work includes the addition of a backup generator and SCADA programing and wiring to connect the facility to the rest of the MCES system. The project will continue into 2020 with an upgrade to employee space to accommodate MCES operation and maintenance needs.
