Metropolitan Council to Replace Aging Sewer Line in Brooklyn Park
In the spring of 2020, the Metropolitan Council plans to replace a sanitary sewer line that runs down Riverview Lane and Mississippi Lane in Brooklyn Park.
The line was constructed in the late 1960s and is now showing signs of deterioration, along with the presence of hydrogen sulfide.
During the excavation and sewer line replacement process, some residents will have their mailboxes relocated, along with occasional disruptions to their water and wastewater service.
“That will be fairly infrequent, we’ll work with the city on that, and we’ll also work with the residents in the area to let them know when this is happening,” said Tim Wedin, the assistant manager of Interceptor Engineering.
Work on the project will begin in February or March of 2020 and take between 12 to 18 months to complete.
The overall cost is about $19 million. For more information, you can go to the project website.
