Construction of the cast-in-place pipe lining project has begun with excavation in Emery Park.  The only significant excavation needed for the project is being completed in Emery Park, which is to install a manhole along the CAB Interceptor.  Stringing of the by pass piping has also begun along Emery Village Farms trail and 117th Avenue.  The bypass piping will extend along the south side of 117th Avenue, west side of Business Park Boulevard, north side of 114th Avenue, and west side of Wisconsin Avenue.  Stringing and fusing the pipe will extent through April 26, 2019.

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 first section of CAB Interceptor repair work is being constructed in 2019 along Xylon Avenue, south of 117th Avenue, to 114th Avenue. This work will be completed prior to a City street rehabilitation project.
