Sewer lift station reconstruction in Coon Rapids

Coon Rapids will again be reconstructing a lift station this year as part of its five-year sanitary sewer capital improvement program. On the docket this year is Lift Station No. 8, which is located at 10320 Mississippi Blvd.

The Coon Rapids City Council has accepted a proposal from SEH, Inc. to provide engineering services for the project.

According to Tim Himmer, Lift Station No. 8 serves an area in the southwest part of Coon Rapids along Mississippi Boulevard.

SEH will prepare a preliminary design report, construction plans and specifications as well as assist the city in bidding and provide inspection services during construction, Himmer said.

Construction will be completed by the fall. The estimated cost of the project is $600,000.

Funding for the project comes from the sanitary sewer fund, which derives its revenues from the quarterly utility bills paid by property owners in the city.
