Minnehaha Park Area Regional Sewer Improvements Project

Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) will start work this summer to rehabilitate the existing regional sanitary sewer tunnel along the north side of East Minnehaha Parkway, located under Minnehaha Creek, Hiawatha Avenue and the METRO Blue Line light rail corridor. The sewer tunnel was built in 1935 and needs repair, and regulatory equipment needs to be updated. The existing tunnel is located near Minnehaha Creek and about 1ó miles northwest of Coldwater Spring, a significant cultural and historic resource. This project will preserve the structural integrity of the tunnel and will minimize the risk of failure in this important natural area.

Project representatives will be attending LCC’s Neighborhood Development and Transportation Committee meeting to provide an update on Monday, August 5th. The meeting will be held at the Longfellow Park Recreation Center at 7:30PM.

Additional information on the project can be found here.
