Metropolitan Council - Sanitary Sewer Project Mound and Spring Park

The Metropolitan Council is replacing aging and deteriorating sanitary sewer pipes in the cities of Mound and Spring Park beginning in June 2024.

An in-person open house will be held Monday, May 13, from 5-7 p.m. at Mound City Hall (2415 Wilshire Boulevard) in the council chambers. At the event, Met Council staff will share information about the project and anticipated construction impacts, such as road closures and detours. The project team will give a short presentation at 6 p.m. Staff will be available to discuss questions and concerns before and after the presentation.

Construction will focus on two main sites: the Shoreline Drive and Auditors Road intersection, and Shoreline Drive between Chateau Lane and West Arm Road. A routine inspection showed the pipes at these locations are in very poor condition and in need of immediate repair. Replacing them will improve the wastewater system and protect against breaks or leaks that could impact public and environmental health near Lake Minnetonka. Construction is anticipated to be completed by April 2025, with final restoration in summer 2025.
