Metropolitan Council Public Hearing:
Seneca Interceptor Improvements Project Draft Facility Plan
Burnsville City Hall (Council Chambers)
100 Civic Center Parkway
Burnsville, Minnesota
Thursday, January 30, 2014
7:00 p.m.
The Metropolitan Council will hold a public hearing to inform the public about and accept comments on its Draft Facility Plan for the Seneca Interceptor Improvements Project (MCES Project No. 808000). The Draft Facility Plan for this project, prepared by the Metropolitan Council’s Environmental Services Division (MCES), outlines alternatives studied and the resulting recommendations for improving these regional sanitary sewers that are located in and serve the city of Burnsville. The sewers convey wastewater to MCES’s Seneca Wastewater Treatment Plant in Eagan
The regional sewers are approximately 50 years old and extend approximately 6 miles through the city of Burnsville – along both sides of Highway 13, along the city’s western border, and through the southern part of the city from the intersection of County Road 42 and Burnsville Parkway southeast to Crystal Lake. The sewer improvements will correct corrosion problems in the existing sewers, as well as add capacity in two areas of Burnsville. The improvements will be constructed in several phases from 2014 to 2016. They would include:
•Open cut construction to replace approximately 15,000 feet of regional sewers with larger-diameter sewers that will increase capacity.
•Installing a lining to create a new sewer within the existing corroded sewer for a stretch of approximately 15,000.
