ST. PAUL, Minn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District signed a project partnership agreement June 27, with the city of Kindred, North Dakota, to support the city’s sanitary sewer service improvement project.
The Kindred Sanitary Sewer Service Improvement Project is currently in the design phase. The project is located 27 miles southwest of Fargo, north of Highway 46, in the city of Kindred, Cass County, North Dakota.
The project, covered under the Corps’ Environmental Infrastructure Assistance Program, will consist of two phases. Phase 1 will include the rehabilitation of the existing stabilization ponds, and expansion of two new cells. Phase 2 will include the rehabilitation and upgrade of the main lift station, and replacement of the force mains to the lagoons.
The sanitary sewer system improvements will increase the city’s sanitary sewer service capacity, while also remaining in compliance with environmental water quality rules and minimizing bypasses of untreated wastewater and associated health risks.
The project has a total cost of approximately $5.6 million, of which $2.95 million will be federally funded.
The St. Paul District’s environmental infrastructure programs assist rural communities with building, designing and/or restoring environmentally-friendly water supply and wastewater treatment systems. As of 2016, the district has assisted more than 50 communities in building 70 projects. The total cost for these projects was approximately $59 million.
