Eagle Lake Lift Stations 7, 8, & 9

Overview

The City of Willmar is undertaking a lift station and sanitary sewer improvement project to the Eagle Lake sanitary sewer system.  This project will reconstruct Lift Station 7 along US 71/MN 23, and Lift Station 8 along 47th Ave NE, and rehabilitating Lift Station 9 along North Eagle Lake Road.

Project Timeline

The following is a tentative schedule for the construction in each of the project areas:

Lift Station 7:

  • Construction is scheduled to start the week of June 10.
  • Duration of major underground utility construction is anticipated to last approximately 3 weeks.

Lift Station 8:

  • Construction is anticipated to start in early to mid-July.
  • Duration of major underground utility construction is anticipated to last approximately 3 weeks.

Lift Station 9:

  • Rehabilitation work includes raising the existing structure and installing a new control panel and is anticipated to start in Late July.

Additional notices similar to this one will be sent out as construction progresses.  If construction is delayed due to inclement weather, assume it will proceed the following day.

Construction Impacts

Construction impacts for each project area are listed below:

Lift Station 7:

  • No anticipated impacts to residents or motorists.

Lift Station 8:

  • Impacts to driveway access will be isolated to the area immediately around the existing and proposed lift station.
  • Narrow roadway along 47th Ave NE around the work area.

Lift Station 9:

  • Impacts to driveway access will be isolated to the area immediately around the existing lift station.

 

Sprinkler Systems/Dog Fences and Tree Removal

We also request sprinkler systems, underground dog fence systems, and any other private improvements within the public right-of-way be marked by the property owners so the contractor can attempt to avoid them during construction. In some instances, these items will need to be relocated.
