Public invited to comment on revised draft environmental assessment for Mille Lacs County sewer extension

Published Nov. 25, 2014
ST. PAUL, Minn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is seeking public comments on the Eddy’s Resort Sanitary Sewer Extension environmental infrastructure project in Mille Lacs County, Minn.

The Corps received a number of comments on the draft environmental assessment for the Eddy’s Resort Sanitary Sewer Extension Project during the initial comment period ending Oct. 24. A revised draft environmental assessment for the project has been completed to provide additional clarification.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, in partnership with the Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures, is proposing to construct four lift stations and 7.5 miles of sanitary sewer main line. The project would extend the service of an existing wastewater treatment facility to Eddy’s Resort Redevelopment, a Marathon Service Station and future commercial development.
The report can be viewed and downloaded from the St. Paul District’s website at: http://www.mvp.usace.army.mil/Missions/CivilWorks/Environment/EnvironmentalAssessments.aspx  

A public review and comment period on the revised draft environmental assessment begins Nov. 25 and ends Dec. 26. Questions and comments concerning project should be directed to Regional Planning and Environment Division North, at (651) 290-5252 or derek.s.ingvalson@usace.army.mil. Please address all correspondence on this project to the St. Paul District, Corps of Engineers, Attention: Regional Planning and Environment Division North, 180 Fifth St. E., Suite 700, St. Paul, Minnesota 55101-1678.
