Metropolitan Council Sewer Improvement Project

Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) operates the sanitary sewer interceptor through Champlin which conveys sewage from the Cities of Anoka, Dayton, and Champlin south east to the Pigs-Eye Waste Water Treatment Facility. The sewer interceptor (CAB Interceptor) extends through Champlin along a route that includes street right-of-way, rear yard easement areas, parks, and drainage areas. The CAB Interceptor is generally 20-feet or more below the surface. Interceptor repair work / improvements will be completed utilizing trenchless technology. The work that is proposed uses a pipe liner that is installed using the existing access manholes. The repairs often include manhole reconstruction which requires excavation at most manholes, but it does not require linear excavation along the length of the pipe.

The majority of the CAB Interceptor improvements within Champlin are scheduled to be completed after 2020 but the MCES has indicated they will work with the City of Champlin to coordinate their work with City street rehabilitation projects.

The first section of CAB Interceptor repair work is being planned for 2018 along Xylon Avenue, south of 117th Avenue, to 114th Avenue. This work will be completed prior to a City street rehabilitation project.
