ST. PAUL, Minn. –The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is seeking public comments on a draft environmental assessment for the proposed sanitary sewer upgrade project in Kindred, North Dakota.
Comments will be accepted through June 18, 2021.
The project, covered under the Corps’ Environmental Infrastructure Assistance Program, includes the construction of new wastewater lagoons, upgrades to the existing main sanitary sewer lift station, installation of new sanitary sewer force main and decommissioning of existing wastewater lagoons.
The sanitary sewer system improvements will increase the city’s sanitary sewer service capacity, while 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 $8million, of which $5.45 million will be eligible for federal funding.
A draft Environmental Assessment that describes the project and the environmental impacts in detail is available to the public and can be viewed and downloaded from the St. Paul District website at: https://www.mvp.usace.army.mil/Home/Public-Notices/.
