I-494 and Valley Creek Road Water Main Rehabilitation Project
Valley Creek Road Water Main Project AreaConstruction wrapped up in June on the lining of approximately 1,100 feet of 12-inch water main that runs down eastbound Valley Creek Road and under Interstate-494. 

This project was approved based on a water main assessment to determine potential failure points of the City’s water main infrastructure under major interstates. Due to the age, pipe material, and location, recommendations were made to improve this section of water main to prevent any potential failures that could cause disruption to I-494 and loss of water service.

Questions can be directed to Jason Hostetter, Utility Division Coordinator, at 651-714-3720 or

Temporary Water Treatment Facility
With the loss of seven water production wells due to PFAS contamination, it was critical the City implement temporary water treatment as soon as possible to meet peak water demands during the summer and beyond until a long-term solution is determined and implemented. The temporary water treatment facility became fully operational in June 2020. Construction and site restoration will continue throughout summer.
