Corps releases final Environmental Assessment for Minot, N.D., sewer extension

Published April 14, 2016

ST. PAUL, Minn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, recently signed a ‘Finding of No Significant Impact’ for a Minot, North Dakota, sewer system project.

The city of Minot, North Dakota, with funding assistance from the Corps’ Environmental Infrastructure Assistance program, is proposing to construct approximately 2 miles of sewer main on the south side of the city. The project would be designed to extend the existing sanitary sewer system and provide service to an area where septic systems need improvement. 

An Environmental Assessment, or EA, was previously prepared describing the project and associated environmental effects. The public review period for the original EA ended in February 2016. However, during the review, the project alignment was modified slightly. The Final EA, along with the changes, can be viewed and downloaded at:
