Corps seeks comments on Petersburg, North Dakota, sewer replacement

Published Jan. 5, 2018

ST. PAUL, Minn. –The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is seeking public comments on plans to replace the sewer system in Petersburg, North Dakota. 

The project would involve replacing the existing clay pipe sewer system with PVC lines, constructing a new storm sewer lift station and PVC drain tile system and replacing existing roads. The new sanitary sewer system would utilize the existing sanitary treatment facility and sanitary treatment ponds.

This project requires a review of environmental effects under the National Environmental Policy Act. A copy of the draft Environmental Assessment with a finding of no significant impact was coordinated with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and state resource agencies prior to posting of the public notice. A final determination on the draft Environmental Assessment will be made following a 30-day public review period. A copy of the draft EA can be viewed and downloaded from the St. Paul District’s website at:

The public review and comment period on the draft Environmental Assessment ends Feb. 9. Questions and comments concerning the project should be directed to Trevor Cyphers, Corps biologist, at
