Sturgeon Lake Wastewater Treatment Facility and Sanitary Collection System
Project Type: Wastewater Treatment Facility and Sanitary Collection System; Sturgeon Lake, MN
Client: City of Sturgeon Lake
LHB planned, designed, and oversaw construction of a new city-wide sanitary system for the City of Sturgeon Lake. The sanitary system includes a wastewater treatment facility (WWTF) and a collection system that will serve 260 residential units, a 200 space campground, and a nearby prison. The WWTF is a three-cell stabilization pond with a rapid infiltration system. The collection system includes seven miles of gravity trunk sewer, 120 manholes, five miles of force main, and seven lift stations. Construction was completed in 2008. LHB worked with the City of Sturgeon Lake to obtain grants through Public Facilities Authority and the US Army Corps of Engineers to assist in funding the projects. No assessments were imposed on city constituents.
