MCES Bloomington Lift Station L55A

Bloomington Lift Station L55A

Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES), operator of the metro-area wastewater collection treatment system, is replacing an aged and undersized lift station with a new lift station to accommodate future flows from the cities of Bloomington and Edina.

Construction is anticipated to occur in several stages beginning in June 2019 through July 2021.

Stage 1: Construct new Lift Station L55A at the intersection of 82nd Street West and American Boulevard West

Stage 2: Construct water and wastewater forcemains under 82nd Street West

Stages 3, 4, and 5: Construct gravity sewer under American Boulevard West

Stage 6: Remove existing Lift Station L55, commission new Lift Station L55A and restore all surface improvements

The work will require road and lane closures, and other typical construction impacts such as noise, dust, vibrations, and 24-hour pumps for the aboveground temporary wastewater conveyance lines.
