This critical link in Brooklyn Center's sewer system required bypass pumping to keep sewage flowing throughout construction.
Mississippi River Trunk Sanitary Sewer CIPP Lining Project
City of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota
Wastewater from the eastern half of Brooklyn Center runs through one trunk sanitary sewer under I-694 and along the Mississippi River before discharging into the Metropolitan Council system. The sewer main was in dire need of root cleaning and because it was such a critical link for the city, was a candidate for both main and manhole rehabilitation.
Bolton & Menk completed trenchless rehabilitation of the main. Due to the importance this link plays in Brooklyn Center's overall conveyance system, Bolton & Menk designed bypass pumping to keep sewage flowing and out of homes and basements as the work was completed.
With the completion of this project the city has a reliable trunk sanitary sewer system and construction was accomplished with little to no adverse effects to residents and businesses.
