Diamond Ring Found in Rogers Water Treatment Facility
Someone in the northwest part of the seven-county metro is missing a diamond ring.
It was found in the wastewater treatment facility in Rogers.
“The gold is pretty beat up and tattered, we noticed that the diamonds were still sparkling pretty well,” said John Tierney, who is a mechanical maintenance manager for Metropolitan Council and was on the crew that found the ring.
Tierney says they noticed the sparkle and extracted it from the sludge.
The hope is whoever lost it will come forward and can verify its theirs. Staff did not show a photo of the ring, in hopes that it can be positively identified.
If you think you can identify the missing ring, you are asked to contact Metropolitan Council staff at MCES-Inquiries@metc.state.mn.us or 651-602-1269.
“The person who lost this ring, it’s unique. Several diamonds on it, so the design is very unique so anybody who lost it would be able to describe the way it looks,” said Tierney.
Tierney says the diamond ring is one of many things that wind up getting filtered out at a wastewater treatment plant that shouldn’t even be in the system.
