Proposed improvements include the relocation of a sanitary sewer line north of Schutta Road in the Rice Creek Regional Park to address operational issues.
The contractor has completed all of the underground work, removed the dewatering equipment, and started the work required to abandon the old sanitary sewer system. The week of December 16 the contractor will complete the work on abandoning the old sanitary sewer system and clean-up the site. The remaining restoration work will be completed in the spring.
The contractor has completed the installation of the new sanitary sewer pipe and connected the new pipe to the existing sanitary sewer located at the intersection of Schutta Road and Lois Drive. The paved areas that were removed on Schutta Road will be restored with a gravel surface, which will be maintained by the City over the winter. Pavement will be installed in the spring along with any concrete curb and gutter sections that were removed. The week of December 9, the contractor will remove the dewatering equipment, abandon the old sanitary sewer infrastructure, and restore the disturbed areas. The contractor will then stop work for the season.
The contractor moved on site this week to remove trees and shrubs and installed erosion control. Next week they will start the installation of the underground piping.
The City and County are in the process of finalizing the agreement to allow the installation of the sanitary sewer pipe. It is expected the work will start in mid to late October.
The City is currently working with Ramsey County on an easement agreement to allow the installation of the sanitary sewer piping. Once the agreement is completed the installation of the sewer pipe will begin.
Project was awarded to Pember Companies at the April 1 Council meeting. Construction on the project is expected to start in late May/early June.
